I started 1 second before you but finished 46 seconds after! That's funny. It did sell out quickly, but then again, they all do anymore.

So maybe we'll have to meet up for this ride Mr. Bolter?....
Official word from DVTR (Matt) is that it went in 1 minute 40 seconds.

As always my little spot in Michaux Is available for parking or camping. Although, with the venue change to the Shippensburg fair grounds it is closer to 12 miles away. Still centric to the route.
It is free, no COVID restrictions, fires, adult beverages and gun play are all allowed.

Thanks Bruce! Might be a fun night to camp out at your property and have a little DAMN party!

Kev, sure, if you do indeed decide to ride it, we can pick a time/place to meet up and ride the event.

Honestly, every time I have done one of these "registration opens at xx", I have my laptop, my bike paperwork, license, credit card out and ready to look at, and my phone on the national time page so I can see actual net time down to the second. I sit there about 5 minutes before, and literally as soon as it rolls to time of opening (to the second like 20:00:00), I hit the registration button and get right into the page and register. Now you have to sit there and be ready to go precisely at start time to the second! Any home network hiccups or laptop issues, you are screwed! :killingme:

I got a spot too.

I just saw the Hancock Quarry Run was canceled recently. This may be one the few organized rides this year.

Sweet! We'll have a DAMN crew after all! You gonna just drive over for the day or are you gonna come night before and camp? I was thinking about doing the campout at Bruce's place night before maybe. He has a sweet place up there.

Bummer about Hancock, that is one of the best events I have ever ridden IRT trail length and quality. I always called the Hancock DS an Enduro without checks as it is mostly ST! Last time I did that event was ~2012.
