That's how they get ya.
Hey, I sit in 10th position (open men) in the National Ultra-Endurance Mountain Bike 100 Series! Alex sent me the link to the new site that has lots of nice info. on the series. Dang, now I'm suddenly trying to figure out how to fit Breckenridge, Wilderness, and Shenandoah into my schedule. Actually, they fit in quite nicely. It would be lots of fun but at $150+ per entry, along with travel, etc... it's an exspensive way to get my name on a silly little list. We'll see.
