Rob and I are in Niagara-on-the-Lake for the long weekend so we'll be there to cheer you on!

Ha ha, Peter, and whom ever else is riding that track. I grew up climbing old Saylor's Hill, so my heart goes out to ya. Not sure we'll be around that weekend, so if we're not we'll be with you in spirit. Keep the rubber down.

And please post with your race category so we know which races to watch for.

Trish - I am racing M3 (8:32am start). Peter Skalenda (Peter S) and Steve Fantaske are both racing M2 (10:50am start).

Demetre Kalkounis is also signed up - he's racing M1 (1:32pm start).

i will be joining peter in m3, hopefully we will get a good group of bcc out to race the m3/s4 category. This race is a lot less sketchy given the uphill finish, tough to sprint to this line.

Have not signed up yet but raced last year and enjoyed the course and the hill, looking forward to doing it again. Racing M3

I have the boys that weekend, not sure if I could keep them (pre)occupied long enough to be able to watch. Will be thinking of you guys - have a great race!

Our daughter is competing in a gymnastics event that day in Alliston. Just a little far to be in two places at once. Best of luck!

As Peter stated I will be racing in the M2 race along with Steve Fantaske & 2 other long time friends from the Donut Ride. Hopefully I can lose some more weight over the next week so that I can get my butt over that hill a little easier.

Kerri, we will be having 5 families present at the race & there will be 9 kids ranging in age from 4 thru 12. I believe that there is a sports park just after Saylor's Hill down the road to the left. I am sure that my daughter will end up there along with most of the other kids.

I have decided to take plunge and try my first race. Needless to say, I will be in the M3 category and am hoping simply to make the 10 minute cut and perhaps finish with the main pack.
