With all the new snow at Whistler, Iâ€™m organizing a switch race.
The details are tentative so far, so email me if something doesn't work for you, or if you have a suggestion. (Dan â€“ firstname.lastname@example.org).
Date: Tues. March 29th
Time: Undecided. Noon/lunch hour probably for Whistler employees.
Place: Undecided. Maybe Saddle to Franzâ€™s where you hit the cat track. Suggestions appreciated. I want a course where you actually need some skill, and canâ€™t just straight-line the whole thing.
Entry: $5 into a pot, which goes to the first down (heats if necessary). Basically, beer money for the winner.
Rules: If you want rules, go race FISuck, this race is Chinese downhill. Will have start/finish lines. Riders will have 50-100m to switch up, then must ride the remainder of the course switch or be dqâ€™ed. Iâ€™m thinking to allow full stops, ex. if you over-speed-check and are about to swing around, then you must come to a complete stop before continuing. That way people can at least slow down if they get too out of control.
Iâ€™ve been meaning to organize this all season, and the conditions are perfect now. Send me an email if you wanna participate. Spread the word, but keep it under the patrol radar.
