Heres the deal:

Andrew is staying at Circus Circus and has a room Fri and Sat night. Call him up to see if there is still room. You will need to throw down some money if you are gonna stay the night there.
Call Andrew for more details @ 559-287-6595

I (Joaquin) have a room at the Sands Regency Resort and Casino for Fri and Sat as well. I have room for some people and you will need to throw down about $15-20, this will cover your stay for both nights, depending on how many people there will be.
Call me for more details @ 760-224-1035

Both of these hotels are less than a half mile to each other so if you wanna hang out at both hotels/casinos they are real close.

Circus Circus --> 80 EAST, Take exit #13 toward VIRGINIA ST/DOWNTOWN RENO, Turn Right on N SIERRA ST, Arrive at 500 N SIERRA ST

Sands Regency Hotel/ Casino --> 80 EAST, Take exit #12/KEYSTONE AVE onto KEYSTONE AVE, turn Left on W 4TH ST , Turn Right on N ARLINGTON AVE, Arrive at 345 N ARLINGTON AVE.

DIRECTIONS to get to the race area:
Go East on I-80 to Nevada. Exit on Virginia St. downtown and Head north. You will pass campus on the right. Continue to just past McCarran road and make the first left into the Rancho San Rafael Softball field parking lot. The XC race starts from near the far end of the lot.
To get to the Downhill start, follow Virginia Street further north past the softball fields. Just after the Bonanza casino you will turn left onto Hoge road. The road turns to dirt at the top, continue to just before the Forest service signs and head south along the fence line. The course starts at the rock outcropping and will be marked.

Be sure you have a COLLEGIATE LICENSE and bring warm clothes as it will be on the cool side.

See you there!

look at
they are having a race during nationals weekend
October 20-22 Lagrange Fall Classic, Weaverville, CA : Super-D Friday, Cross Country Saturday, Downhill Sunday. Held in the Weaver Basin Trail System,the we have a ton of singletrack to work with---many of the trails are flume trails dug by hand during the 1850's gold rush. Friday's Super-D starts way up Weaver Bolly Mountain and then joins on to the some of the best parts of the XC...last year's winning expert time was over 20-minutes! Yeah, you'll get your money's worth! The Cross-country is mostly singletrack, experts and sports get to enjoy the challenge of the Lagrange Ditch trail. The Downhill starts way up Weaver Bolly mountain and drops over 2500 feet in a 4-mile plunge to the singletrack finish near East Weaver Campground. To enter on-line, click here

Team Bigfoot award to top 3 in each category
SUPER D: The course uses some of the upper 2/3 of the Downhill course, then veers onto a 3-mile section of the famed flume trails of our cross-country course for a total of 6+ miles of swooping, speeding, roller-coaster ride fun!!
CROSS COUNTRY: Much of the course is on flume trails dug by hand during the gold-rush days of the 1850's. Start/Finish line is at Trinity High School. The Beginner cross-county course is 16 miles of singletrack and fireroad with about 2000' of climbing. The Sport/Expert/Pro Course is about 21 miles and includes the famous LaGrange Ditch singletrack.. .fun stuff!
DOWNHILL: The Downhill course is about 4 miles and has over 2400'' of altitude drop. We run shuttles from the High School. Course will be open for practice on Saturday after the Super-D to registered riders who have picked up their rider packet and signed their waivers. On race day we shuttle with trucks and trailers, and racers who have appropriate vehicles are encouraged to shuttle themselves to help speed up the day. On Sunday we run downhill practice shuttles at 9am. Each racer gets as many practice runs as they can squeeze in before timed runs begin at noon.

there is also a lot of road rides here locally:
honey run,
sac river loop,
nord/cana highway loop,
table mountain
etc etc...

Parkfield Pics???

What a killer weekend...camping, riding/jumping bikes of all makes and sizes, and cheering for poor souls to eat dirt...what fun...besides the 6 hour drive. Anyways, hope everyone had some fun and hope that some of you have some great pictures!!! Send them my way and maybe we can put something together for the meeting or at least the site. Plus I want to see some of those pixie jumping pics, since I was riding and didn't get to see most of it...
