sketchings and wildtalk

Brenty and Sabine are going nutzo with their course designs for the Surf City finale.

lord have mercy ... this thing is going to be a roller coaster.

The early thoughts are that we won't be using the runup from Hell this time. Which makes for some very tough planning to get down and up from the various levels.

But the weather looks just damp enough in the future to keep the dust down, but not quite wet enough to stop us from using and abusing the grasslands.

This weekend we'll prolly get out there to do the final recon work. I think the setup crew is going to be doing a shitload of work next Saturday.


... oh well, at least we won't be diving into the oak this time.

How about an X section in the middle like demolition derby. It may be the only chance we people at the back have to take out the front runners!

We should just make the course one gigantic swirly.

And anyone who calls it a spiral is Dq'd

Vanderhoot,

I love your blogs but you seem to forget there's a bit'o'cross in the Seattle. Where TreeFarm chased around Knapp. Where Beggs chased around the other Knapp. And many, many other. Watch out for Iddings this year...both SR and JR.

See you all soon. Keep blogin'

much soul to the great northwest.

Mike,

You're making me want to build up the old cross bike so bad right now. Everything sounds so much fun with the surf city series this year. maybe I'll try to jump in a few local races. Unfortunately, taking 19 units so not much time for training (although it is cross). Looks like you're enjoying it and thats what its all about. By the way, sweet bumblebee costums.
