Alafia race Sunday
« on: October 20, 2010, 11:36:25 AM »
I was considering entering the novice class at the race at Alafia on Sunday, and I was there yesterday and the race course was marked.  All was good until I went into Moonscape.  I got overwhelmed in there, and it was beyond my capabilities at this point in my life.  Do the novices have to go thru there?

I am racing Novice myself and have yet to do Moonscape. Word through the grapevine is Novice is not doing Moonscape..On a side note if its in there im still doing it.

C ya Sunday

Last year moonscape was taken out of the novice course. But if its left in, just hop off and hike-a-bike!! You'll probably get through there faster than most on your feet!
