    Dont know what a dns is but when you hit the first single track and fall in the middle of a curve with 7 guys right behind you. Thats when i knew this wasnt going to be a good race.

    You know its not going to be a good race when you are at the finish line and you feel that bean burrito from last nights dinner making its way up.

    You know it will not be a good race when you get to the race and realize you left your bike at home.
    I know some one who did this. LMAO

    Sucks about your pedal.

    Whats worse, is a guy who calls you buddy, doesnt offer you his peddle, I dont care if I start 5 min late...
    I could have lived with that, but not offering somone a peddle, Hrumph!! (thats outside the self supported rule, I havent started yet!! )

    The same pedal problem happened to me, but not during a race. Riding down the road to hit the trails and it jsut popeed right off. The clip in part still stuck to my shoe. Had to tighten and put it all back together when I got home.

    I didn't forget the bike but I did forget to pack my shoes. Drove too far to get there, so threw on some flats and raced in sandals. Everyone thought I was "hardcore"
