This week's practices:
Tuesday: 4-6pm Descanso Gardens. We will separate into 2 groups: those racing this weekend and those not racing.
Thursday: 4-6pm Descanso Gardens. (Last chance to train before going to Warner Springs)
Sunday - The 2nd race of the season!
It will be beautiful at Warner Springs. It is an excellent race course for first timers if you are one. If you went last year, the course will be about 20% different and the weather will be 100% better!
If you go down there on Saturday, be sure to plan on trying the hot springs. If anyone is making a last minute decision to join us, we can fit you in the lodging somewhere. The cabins there are really nice and amazingly cheap. Talk to Mrs. Babingotn or Ms. Pettigrew if you haven't already.

This Weeks Practices (and Race!)

Tuesday and Thursday Practices will be at Descanso from 4pm to 5:45pm - as usual. See you there.

Saturday will be a Pre-Ride of the race course at Vail Lake in Temecula! Different people may be arriving at different times, but I hope to be there towards the end of the day in time to lead a pre-ride of the course in the late afternoon daylight, if anyone is interested.

Sunday will be a few hundred of you, your friends, family and your high school peers camping, riding, racing and cheering. It will be fun and really good mountain biking experience. Even if you don't race, you should still come for the riding and to cheer on your team mates.
