    We would love to increase the number but the County will only let us have 350 total. Unless that changes this will be what it is.

    I get passed by enough girls on the climbs without pedaling my RFX.

    I have a 5 Spot that I'll ride in VQ. With wimpy tires I can get the weight down to a reasonable level.

    There will be no waiting lists for either event. As well as no refunds. If you didn't get registered before it sold out, is to take someone elses spot that can't do it. We(Warrior's Society) will not be handling this.

    I suggest that you keep an eye out here on this board over the next few months to see who drops out. As December/January roll around, a lot of people drop out.:?:

    So I guess when your registration keeps coming back with this message:

    Attention! Registration limit check failed for desired events

    It means the event is sold out?? What happened to plain old English--simple and direct?

    I guess that means the CC will have to be dropped next year to make more room for the VQ. ;)

    I guess those that dropped out last year because of the fire want redemption this time around.

    Did I just say redemption?!?
    Someone move this to the pub! :lol:

    CC for me and Princess of Pain. Was hoping to do VQ but I forgot this morning. Princess signed me up for CC and single speed as a consolation. Did it geared last year. Really looking forward to the good spirit I experienced last time.

    Wow, I guess the old way of mailing in your registration would have left you SOL this year.

    Hopefully the forest will completely open in a month or so. Those who didn't make the CC registration this year you can still go out and run the course. Just leave one car at Maple Springs as your aid station.

    Are you doing the CC? It's not to bad. Just practice making the cut off times before hand so you know how hard to push yourself. And then just have fun with the rest!
