12hr of Dauset

Anyone plan on doing this this year?  Even though I have gotten fat and out of shape I think I would like to do the 6hr. 
If anyone is going lets set up a car pool.

Write me down Sean...  If we can come up wtih a hitch rack, I can carry 4 bikes and 4 riders.  I am doing the free camping this year to save money.  So far I am in talks (if price is right) with Morrison and Naked Indian to share a ride.  Naked lives east cost FL though (Deltona).

Ok.  So if I go and decide to ride, all a little in the air still.  What gear choice are you guys running?  SS that is.  Geared riders can share their jokes accordingly. ;D

This will be perfect for 32x19 running for 12 hours and maybe 32x18 for the 6 hours.

I'd love to make this race, but I have to be at a conference that weekend here in Tampa.  Are there any other endurance races remaining this year that are not too far away?

SandPine was telling me about one...

I would say the closest nextest one is Pine Log 12 hour.

Karlos, yes bad idea.  Dauset is very very similar as San Felasco in terrain.  Trails may be a bit more groomed over there and a few rocks here and there.  The climbs are a bit longer and some a bit more steaper but is not really way way more climbing.  As a matter of fact, it is only about 300 or 400 ft more per lap in climbing the San Felasco.  Check this out and you can use for to load as course to your Garmin Edge:
