    Anybody riding Pierre's Hole 2020?

    They really do need a new name for this race.

    Anybody signing up for the race? 50k/100k/100m at Grand Targhee on August 1, 2020

    This will be my first race, although I'm only doing the 50k. I'm signing up for a 50miler on Labor Day weekend too, so I'm looking forward to doing lots of riding this summer to get ready.

    I've raced it three times.now, but am getting my knee replaced in April, so not this year. A few improvements to the course for this year too. IMHO the training for this race is super fun. Just ride hard for 3 hours and you're good to go!

    HMS, judging from how my recovery is coming, you might be amazed what you will be capable of by August.

    hummm, now I'm thinking about this event....

    Any guess on how dumb it would be to single speed it?

    There is a single speed division, so you wouldn't be the only one. Seems dumb to me but then I can't really figure out why people SS at all.

    I threaten to sign up every year about this time and then never do. Maybe this is the year?

    You know there is one guy in the board room that is all like “seriously guys, this is embarrassing, we gotta change the name”
    And there are 4 others at the table saying “What, I don’t get it” “What, Why, what do you mean”

    Pierre has a Knob named after him at Bridger Bowl. Who was this studly man? His butthole and man parts are all over the west.

    Dang, there goes my excuse. Good on you, Rideit, for speedy recovery. I was told 6weeks for 80%, but another 6 weeks for that final 20%.

    ZZZ, you would love this race. Do it!

    Course for the 100 milers is using Tall Cool One to the summit and then down Sidewinder, which adds a different long climb and fun long descent.. Unfortunately it looks like only the 100 milers get to do this loop.

    Had a foot surgery that didn't quite take last summer, waiting to see the surgeon at the end of the month to see what summer looks like.

    You guys doing a bike road trip soon? I'll be up your way first week of March and would love to hook up for a tour if you're around.
