Does the 50ex class run with the other experts at 9 or are they considered "senior"?

I like your thinkin, then our seat time on the bike will match our seat time behind the wheel, seems like a better value.

So a few years back I had a cross country race that lasted over 2 1/2 hrs and people *(female dog)* and complained that it was to tuff and to long, so you two want to go five hours, how about you two go a extra two laps and then ride sweep for the jr B's, I want to make sure you get your money's worth. I'll supply the water and 1 St aid too! I talked to Dave and reminded him to be careful of what he wishes for, got some new never rode trails, trees 18 inches apart and blackberries the size of East Fort Rock jack pines, couple dry Creek I can add a little moisture to.

Ok folks, looks like the flyer and what was posted here disagree a bit. To clarify, the Experts race first at 9am and ALL the Am classes and 50+ race at 12:30. That is what the flyer says and that is how it's gonna go down. Yeah it'll be warm but the course is awesome and will improve as the day goes on and the brand new trails get burned in. I would also expect very little dust as there is so much virgin trail. I just did a sight lap(no I will not be racing)and can say it will be very much like an old school cross country, but with shorter laps. Get out here and ride, it's gonna be good!
