Squiggy 2009...who is game?
« on: January 26, 2009, 07:46:42 PM »
So who is riding at the Squiggy event this year?  I'm doing to do the Men's Beginner Solo again.  Hoping this year's weather and trail conditions will be a bit better than last year. 


For all those Squiggy solo veterans...I have a question regarding the logging of laps.  Last year as I approached the checkpoint I heard some yell my number so I assumed I was logged/timed and went on my way.  I heard this on every lap.  Ends up that my laps were never logged (I did three, but they had me down for one really long lap...and luckily I had my wife and friends timing my laps).  Do I physically have to stop to talk to someone or what?  I want to avoid having this issue again this year.

Better look out for the Grumpy Pickles, or whatever they are called. Single Speed Bill, Aussie Jim and Wicked Fast Scott.

Does anyone recall what trails were in the race last year? The only time I rode that trail system was last year and I'd like to make it at least a couple of times before the race.

I think I remember most of it....There was a lot of mud. That I am sure of.
