    My father died in 1999, but he'd be tickled to see me racing (err crashing)

    I'm expecting to be woken up by my daughter jumping on me at 7:00 instead of the usual 6:30...

    Have a great race- Camrock is pretty cool. If you get into town a day early and think "man, I could really improve my performance at tomorrow's race by beating the crap out of my bike and riding in the heat", check out blue mounds. Bring spares.

    Touch O Gray lives in that area I believe.

    Camrock is over near Cambridge/rockdale thus Cam-rock.

    Camrock 3 is short but steep. It's a pretty cool trail.

    Weather says near 90 with heat indexes over 90, and when yer my size, that's hot...

    Yea, Rockdale. We're going tomorrow because she wants to do the new rider thing during the hottest part of the day (5:00). Stay at a friends Saturday night and race Sunday and go home.

    My daughter lives a couple of miles from cambridge...it's a lake mills address.

    HELL...I just looked it up...I had no idea there was a park there, I ride down there periodically, south to B then B, across 73 then back north to deerfield then marshall...then home ...about a 60 mile loop
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right......

    Worst crash I saw today at the Battle of CamRock was some spectator dump his madone on the asphalt trying to get through the gates up by the main area.

    It didn't assplode so it looks like Trek makes good bikes.

    I got a little frisky on a turn, caught the outside edge of the scooped out rut, and low-sided. Just a skun knee, butt, and elbow, I popped right back up before anyone saw.
    My seat tilted all the way back on me, nose pointed towards the sky. I was able to yank it back a little bit level, but the mount broke. I rode 1 1/2 laps without sitting, that sucked.

    No. That's Don. He's the owner/operator of the WORS series. I'm involved with the Battle at the local level.

    Thanks for the good words by the way. We're working to make it better every year. Now if we could only find a bottomless source for volunteers!
