Urban Short Track Races through buildings again

Ok, so sorry to all the gang who saw the race 4 video and thought that every one of the LaGrane Urban short track races was on the same course. The 8 race series has been crazy and had some cool element, and the final two races will be crazy. Both include sections that go thorugh buildings and tight city alleys. Thanks to the Oldham Era, The City of LaGrange and GooseCreekCycle.com for the use of their buildings ant streets. check out the info below, and out Cinci and IN gang should feel welcome to come back it will be crazy for the last two Races:

The Lagrange Urban Short Track series is about to wrap up, but it is going to be crazy.
Race7 Feb 11: the "Skate park" race has been revamped to inlude a trip through the Oldham Era building which means the Oldham Era Log Drop is out, but it is worth the trade check out the course description here: http://www.goosecreekcycle.com/USTrace7.htm

Race 8 Feb 25: The final race will be a revamp of everyones favorite "Through the buildings" race check out the Video below to see what everyone was raving about:
And seriously, you HAVE to watch ths video:

After watching those vids, this does not strike me as fun. I guess I don't understand it.
