Saturn Classic in CampHill and the Rockville race? I live near the Camphill race-haven't raced yet, but I'll be there to check it out.
What are you waiting for?Dwayne Barry

Jump in, get your feet wet! The whole point of having a "C" race is to provide an oppurtunity for new people to try the sport out. Still got a couple of hours before pre-registration closes at Bikereg.com for the Camp Hill race.
I think I will..KG 361

It's UCI-do I need a temp license? I'v been mulling it around since I found out about it. I'll be using my old SS Bianchi that I have cross tires on-27". I have used it on some fairly tight single-track and it does OK. 30 minutes of h*ll can't be TOO terrible, can it? =)

You only need a UCI license if you're racing the elite race. You need a USCF license for any of the other race categories, which can be had for $5 for the 1-day of racing.
Thanks. nmKG 361

I was thinking about racing both but don't have the time to. I did the prophecy cross race two weeks ago (I think), and had an absolute blast. I raced the C class which meant about 3 laps. Sorry to the rest of the crossers out there I actually didn't hurt that bad at all. I felt really good the whole time and realized that 30 minutes is too short. I also really the experience cause I finished well in 5th place. I'm going to do the B's this time. If you're at Rockville look me up, I'll be one of the only Black guys there, and one of the few riding a Singlespeed. Put the two together and I'll probably be the only Black guy riding as SS. I'll have on a Swarthmore College jersey too which is Maroon and Black. Hope to see you there.

Don't you mean Sunday for Rockville? Camp Hill is Sat, Rockville Sunday. I don't think I'll be able to do the "C" race tomorrow-I think I have a fever and generally feel like sh*t. I went past the park that the Camp Hill race is at today-they were setting up the course. If I feel any better later today I still might do it. If I get to Rockville, I'll look for you. You should be easy to spot =)
Hey Swat. I'm going to do the Men's C @ Rockville.KG 361

I don't feel too great today but I'll check the race @ Camp Hill out then do the race on Sunday. I should feel better by then. I'll look out for you. I'll be the tall (6') white guy on a SS black Bianchi w/ BIG wheels (27")
