    I highly doubt anyone would mind.....it is a fundraiser after all and the more folks that join in the better.
    So you want to race huh. Road I assume. Come over to the dark side....get a mtn bike and come out with Bradyn, Wes and me. Not only are there way more cute girls but the attitude is way better also.

    I would race mtn if I had the bike! Probably next season if money works out and I don't end up in Tokyo. Right now I just want to get better on the bike and they always say practice makes perfect.

    How *serious* does your team take it? Are you Sub 1hour serious, or do you alternate between laps and beers?

    I do have the loaner rig if you want to come out on a non-race day for some dirt fun. That bike is gonna get HAMMERED this year. Leave yer bike in the shop for 10 months and this is what you get.

    Ok racing sounds like fun, entry level mtb = $?

    P.S I posted this before but BF kept crapping out.

    heh.. so I guess putting together a half-assed team might not be a huge problem. The only issue I foresee with alls yalls racing 24-hr is lighting systems for night laps. What say you, Keith? How do folks normally deal with that? I actually don't have a lighting system for myself yet anyway, so that's something I'd like some advice about for myself at some point.

    Offhoff: do it! Road racing is the ****! F*ck MTB (sorry guys). I regularly do the CNE, even now, and you'll find guys there most evenings after dark once the weather gets a touch better. Otherwise, there's a quality fast-paced ride every Thursday leaving from high Park, and of course the infamous donut ride. You can find me at any of these rides on a regular basis. Also, I should give a plug to my club, who does a learn-to-race weekly program (check out midweekclub.ca for more info). Aside from being affiliated with them, it is an excellent program (I can say so b/c I did it myself)

    OK, PM me if you want to ride sometime.

    So tovi, what's the deal with the "learn to race" program. Is it worth it if I don't actually intend to race? I wouldn't mind doing some group riding etc. It's pretty much on my commute home so it sounds interesting.

    your underweight dilema is nothing a few fried peanut butter sandwiches couldn't cure. may i suggest you reference our discussion a while back on items suitable for deep frying?

    iBrad: I think it's a very good graduated program geared to give you the confidence and skills to race, but given that many local unsanctioned group rides morph into defacto races, there's something you could still get out of the Monday night events. From week to week there's different lessons, eg. cornering, drafting, paceline (and paceline ettiquette), braking, sprinting, etc. The speed is controlled during the lessons and there are coaches there to teach you and ride with the group. All the riders who show up are broken up into smaller groups so we can keep the ratio of coach:rider down. After the lesson portion (about 45-60min), you guys all reassemble and do your own race for 1/2hr or so. Everyone has someone of similar ability to ride with, and nobody gets dropped/neglected. You'll find that after a couple weeks that you feel more confident in your skills, and your feel more comfortable at speed, so you'll bump up into the next category. Between the Monday and Teusday night events, there's four categories: two on Monday (least experienced and some experience) and two on Teusday (intermediate and elite). The whole idea is that there's a place for everybody and it's broken up enough that you can notice your improvements as you go.
