Does anyone have any info on the southwick practice on the 30th. Start time? Cost?

Practice runs from 9am to 5pm and it will like be broken into classes the entire day.

I have a non-structural fracture in my pelvis so I probably won't make it. I'd like to hook up with anyone that goes if I go!

I won't make my final decision on whether or not I am going until Saturday afternoon. I feel pretty good today and should feel better by this weekend. I'll post here about the decision and we'll have to meet somewhere before we get inside the place.

Make sure you don't go with beat rounded-off knobby tires. You will have a miserable time without sharp-edge dig required to get around the place without a ton of effort. It is a SANDY place, to say the least. Also, don't run too little sag and make sure your forks are down to OEM in the clamps (if you raised them to turn on a tight track or something).

I think it's going to be a bit wet, too. Rain in the forecast and cold at night so the water won't drain through the ice. Could be ugly and rutted on the track, but it's good practice for that stuff. It's not sunny every day we ride, unfortunately.

I exchanged email with the Track Manager and here is what he had to say...

Not sure if he's pulling my leg, but it will be dry????? (start at the bottom and read up.

Him...

No it will be dry . we will not have water.

Me...

Great, is the rest real muddy?

Him...

The track will be open on sun, The couple frozen spots will not stop us we may have to go around them. see you sun.

Me...

Hi, I'm planning to ride the OP on Sunday with a couple buddies and before we make the trip from upstate NY we want to make sure that you are still planning to be open. Is the track still frozen and very hard or has is loosened up yet?

How much mud do you have?

Looking forward to riding there!!!

Sand drains pretty well. Even with rain Friday the track should be dry on Sunday. I raced there early last year and the said there was some frost, I never noticed.

Please tell me no rain either?

We should all meet up there and do a TT lap (just make it slow so I can keep up)
