(quote from original post on Facebook) -

So the dirt individual time trial at Peddlers Pass is seeing some interesting additions. Last year we had a tandem class. One tandem showed up and it was bloody (literally) good entertainment. 

This year we added a Clydesdale class for the big and tall sorts who don’t like chasing the horse jockeys. 

We also have added an electric vehicle class that include categories for One Wheels (think single wheel hoverboards/skateboards), EVunicycles, and Ebikes.

Register online or onsite for the same pricing.

Looks awesome but gonna be in AR for DH.

Rode peddlers pass this past Sunday, first time since it was built a couple of years ago. Damn, nicely done out there. The flow is so much better and super fun!

I met someone this past Sunday... She's a local BMX champion in her class and came in third in the nationals... Pretty cool. We got to talking about mountain biking and I found out that she's really interested in participating in local mtb races, so I told her about this and sent her the info. She's pretty excited about it. Wants her young son and daughter to ride in it too.

Every time I ride it, it's better.

Any chance this race DOESN’T get postponed now? Rained Sunday, yesterday, today and more tomorrow. Not much sun in the forecast. When would be the next race date?

I would guess it will be a call made on Friday.  HoneyBadger has been hard at work on certain sections as I've seen new drainage trenches in a few areas the past few rides.  I hope it doesn't get postponed.

Hey, what qualifies a rider to be Cat 2 or Cat 3?  I rarely race and I'm in my mid 40's, but I ride a lot and have a 16:42 PR on PP (10/28/19).  I'm concerned that if I sign up for Cat 3 in this older category, I'll be constantly faced with having to pass someone.  Passing riders on PP is somewhat challenging, so I want to ensure I'm signing up for the right class.  Any suggestions?

Here are the Cat 2 40yo times from  June 2019 when the course was what I'd guess to be about 30 seconds slower. 

Actually, in addition to the new berms, the surface should be much better than the moon-dust that we had last time.  I expect to see some jaw-dropping times laid down...

Unfortunately I'll be out of town 😞

That was a really hot day and the course was a bit loose.  I agree with you this year the times will get smashed.  I think the top rider will get under 13 minutes.

My son has a BB tournament so I cannot attend.

Oh, as far as cat, you can request USAC cat up from 3.  If you don't have a license, then just sign up for 2.   Cat 3 is meant to be a beginner category. 

I "catted" up years ago b/c I hated racing in cat 3 and didn't mind the extra lap in TMBRA races.

I was in the old man 50+ class last time and did not have an issue with passing.  During the pre-race meeting they asked that you call out when approaching a slower rider so they can give way.  In every instance but one I had the slower riders pull over before I had a chance to say anything.

i had a lot of fun at the race. Thanks Guys!
any word on the dude that went down on the last lap of cat 3? it looked pretty bad.
 


His shoulder got dislocated and he couldn’t get it back in. They eventually called for EMS.
