Albion Hills 24-Hour Race anyone?

Who else here is going to the Albion Hills Hot August Nights 24-hour race in Ontario, Canada taking place on the 19th and 20th of this month.

I'll be heading there with my mountain bike club. We'll have two teams of 5 entered in the race. If you're there look for "Club Velo Epic". I'll be the guy with the black Kona Blast hardtail with the pink Chris King headset and wheel hubs.

Edit:
Event info is here http://www.chicoracing.com/html/modu...rtid=10&page=1

Good luck. I wish I could fit in a 24 hour race this year. Unfortunately my race and work schedule wouldn't allow it. Hopefully next year.

If this is your first one you will be amazed at how much fun you have. I've never had as much fun racing as I had at 24 hours of big bear last year. It's like a big party!

I finally got an invite to be on a 24-hour team for the Spokane event - - and had a schedule conflict with the Ski to Sea Relay in Bellingham Well, only kind-of - - Ski to Sea was cool too.

BTW, good luck Santiago - - should be a lot of fun.

Thanks everyone. I'll be sure to take lots of pics and report back. My club has been going to the Hot August Nights event for years but it will be my first time going. They always seem to have fun and I'm really looking forward to it.
