Might I suggest turning this a two day event to accommodate more racers and make more money.

If you weren't able to sign up, watch the racing and classifieds forums for transfers the month or 2 leading up to the race. There's usually several folks that are looking to transfer because they haven't been able to put in the training time.

I specifically no longer register when it opens because entries have always been available. This lets me make the decision on doing the race much closer to entry day.

Not sure that would be possible. The primary reason the race is capped to a small number is because that's all the forest service will allow in order to minimize impact on the area. Doubling the number of people, even over 2 days is probably not in their interest.

Went to Big M last saturday to pre-ride the trail. Unless it rains it will be pretty loose over there. There were also some sections with heavy overgrowth. It was actually kinda fun to ride it without racing. The climbs did not seem to be that hard actually.

locals have been on task this week and last, clearing over grown trail sections. the typical sections will be sandy due to lack of consistent rain. NFS re-routed a short section out on the road monkey to avoid some tribal land.

How short / long? Got a map showing this? (Really curious about it, because NCT stuff goes through tribal land as well.)

As of June 13 morning the weather forecast shows 90% chance of thunderstorms and rain for Saturday morning. :| Hope it will not get canceled. If it will be short periods of downpour I think I can deal with it.

In the previous 13 years, Lumberjack has never been canceled.....there would have to be some imminent danger to participants/volunteers for that to happen. The trail itself in sandy and is generally quite good in the rain.

It's probably only a 30-45s segment. It'll be an out-of-the-saddle affair unfortunately due to the coarseness of the new trail but nothing to worry about.

Ah! Thanks. I remember a spot like this in years past. New trails sucks, but if it's short... alas...

What happened? Did trail accidentally clip a corner of a property boundary or something?
