I hope this series happens again next year. we can only hope we get a...

It's all about the clock. You are not racing anyone but the clock. If you are fast where you are now you will be fast moving up as well. Riding with faster riders helps a lot. I am slow and I know it. I tell everyone behind me to yell loud and early and I will let them by as long as I can do so with...

I for one have faith in the RR crew to put on a good show. I Know we always associate the Duryea race with Urban, but as it is part of the Gravity series I understand why the course needed to be different.

I stayed at the State park last year. I think it is Jamaica? was nice, cheap, but at the bottom of the mountain. a bit closer to a 20 min ride. Bring skeeter repelant and get the lientou. good storm cover plus you can put ypur tent under it.
