Folsom Race Weekend

I plan on doing all three days. Anyone else planning to do it? Maybe we can split a hotel cost....

Doh, I just replied to another thread too soon. I'll be there doing the Sunday race only. I'll see you there!

If your doing Henlyville, lmk. Looking for somebody to split gas/hotel with, and my teammates all seem to be staying for the Davis Crit.

I was thinking about doing the TT on Friday, but I decided not to embarrass myself (I'm slow, don't have a TT bike or even aerobars)
I will try to get out there on Saturday with the family. If I ride out there I'll be wearing the 2008 Sierra Century Jersey with matching green socks. Say Hi if you see me.

I might come out and watch this weekend. But I'm kinda moving too (getting keys, but not leaving current place till end of the month), so it'll be a busy weekend

I've signed up for the Omnium but my weekend is imploding. I'm trying not to be too pissed off about it, but this was going to be the cap of the season.

Bummer. I was hoping to seat on your wheel in the crit, you seem to be good at staying near the front.

Well that was a fun race weekend. Although doing a 10mile TT with a warm up consisting of riding to the start line, really really sucked. The courses were in good condition, and race it self was relatively well organized. I highly recommend doing it next year.

P.S. It was fun talking to Caloso at the circuit race. Thanks for the tips on the course!
