    If I get a bike in May I'd be interested. You want to do the solo century? That's fucking far. Like marathon shit. Would be cool to get a couple people together and do the team relay.

    You're kidding me right? Is it even a question? Team relay, pfft.

    Didn't you get the memo, that's not far for you since you'll be pulling buzzworthy during training at the buzzapalooza.

    All I can think is, OW.

    Too bad my bike ain't exactly at race weight; otherwise I'd totally do it!

    Talking

    We were sitting at poison spider bikes in moab when CS walks up and telephil hands him the brochure for this race. I've never seen a more blatent "thats the stupidest thing ever" look on someones face.
    You'll never make it on that heavy ass bike you've got now. You should get a shave and a haircut too for less weight and wind resistance.

    BTW, the total elevation gain for this ride comes in at about 19,000 feet. I'm more likely to go climb everest this afternoon.

    It's equivalent to riding up and down the LCC road 5 times. Except you'll be on rough trails, not a smooth road.

    Whee.

    I'm in.

    No, wait. I'll be in Whistler that weekend (or the one after), riding the chairs, and going down that many feet, or more.

    And besides that, nothing about that race sounds fun................nothing.

    Oh, and flykdog, yeah, you got it right. That's pretty much what I thought when Phil handed me the flyer. Well, that and "hey, who's the hottie standing behing flykdog and Telephil?"

    Not only was she hot, she is one HELL of a rider. She had just rode Porcupine with the Yeti boys on a very hardcore hardtail (she was doing manuals and shit all over the parking lot before you guys got there). The Yeti boys did it on full DH rigs.....
    That climb has to be sweet with a 48T ring and 9" of travel...

    Right on, Phil.

    I want to do a 100 this year, too, but scheduling conflicts are keeping me out of Vail and Durango, so I'm going with this one Laramie Enduro

    Not quite 100 mi, but good enough for me.

    There are a couple interested guys in my office, so if you need a team Phil, let me know--I can send you some good riders (with legs).

    I signed up, very little chance that I'd be able to finish it, but I'd die trying. I'll just spend all june training at elevation.

    If I take someone else's chance at it... tough cookies.
