Congrats on your new Forum. Ask an ye shall receive. Must be the season of giving affecting Joe.
I'm not much of a racer. I've done it a couple of times, had fun, but don't have the time and money to be as dedicated in order to be competitive. Not to mention, around here you have to travel so far to get to races. The closest is about 1.5 hours away, and the furthest is over 5 hours. Every other weekend. That's a serious commitment! That and I hate not winning. So, I just ride for fun.
I usually race once or twice a year, but that's about it.
There is an upcoming 12 hour race in February that I'm seriously contemplating. Tinker Juarez came down last year, and he's expected to attend to race "solo". Also, Gary Fisher is rumored to come also. I've been asked to join a team, but we'll have to wait and see!
