    Sorry, just to clarify: the qualifying race on Saturday at 11am is at the location in Kent of the final Sunday race, right?

  2. rschuetze says:

    The qualifier on Saturday at 11am is at Schooner Exact in Seattle. Sunday is the only day with events taking place in Kent.

  3. muddymike says:

    Glad to see the MFG schedule was adjusted to accomodate those wanting/needing to race both MFG and SSCXWC races.

  4. flx says:

    will there be some group ride for spectators from seattle to kent and back?

  5. rschuetze says:

    There is always room for someone to start one….

  6. flx says:

    word, pretty excited for that weekend. hope it stays dry…

  7. bobby says:

    given the urban setting for qualifiers on Saturday, are we supposed to be rolling cross bikes with cross tires or road tires…or straight up road bikes? Also, Saturday is a busy family day, what time do qualifiers “wrap” given the 11am start time? thanks a bunch!! Bobby

  8. John Canfield says:

    I hope it doesn’t stay dry.

  9. geoff casey says:

    You can ride from georgetown to kent on almost all bike lanes and bike path. The path makes up almost 80%. Plan on about 1.5 to 2 hours.

  10. rschuetze says:

    @Bobby- The bike used for the qualifier should be the same bike used for the race. That means a single speed cross bike.

    As for “wrap” time- that all depends on you… Qualify in the main race and you can head on home to your family and a nice warm bed…boring…. If you don’t qualify in the main race, you can stick around and smash your fingers with a hammer for another shot at qualifying which will be going late into the evening. Other qualifying events may or may not include old time favorites such as dodge-rock, gay chicken, trainwreck darts, or scrabble.

  11. Byron says:

    So it’s an Alley Cat to qualify? We’re racing around the brewery?

  12. rschuetze says:

    Cross Cat- The city can be dirty too…

  13. novedevon says:

    Do women have to qualify? What if we can’t make it Saturday?

  14. Sally says:

    If you can’t make the main qualifier there will be other second chance qualifiers saturday and the winner of the MFG SS race on sunday qualifies

  15. brian says:

    “hope it stays dry” guy should be DQ’d for that comment. Sacrilege! I hope for flooding of biblical proportions. It would be awsome if we had to ford/swim parts of the course.

  16. Eric says:

    Cross Cat eh??? Sounds interesting. We won’t need messenger bags will we?

  17. koos42 says:

    Make like Oregon Trail!

    Weather: Cold
    Mud Puddle Width: 42ft
    Mud Puddle Depth: 5ft

    You May:
    1. Attempt to ford the puddle
    2. Caulk bike and float it across
    3. Wait to see if conditions improve
    4. Build up some speed and skip across

    What is your choice?

  18. Brando says:

    Can we pick our packet at Schooner Exact any time during the day after 9 AM on Saturday?

  19. beardkiller says:

    why are all you asking so many damn questions? show up saturday, qualify. show up sunday and race till you puke bacon. it’s going to rain, bring a poncho, and damnit…just do what the nice sasquatch says, you’ll be fine.

  20. [...] The race will take place after the 4th MFG Cyclocross series race, at 3:30 pm Sunday 10-24-10, at Pacific Raceway.  NOTE to all MFG racers the schedule is different from what your used to.  Check race times, here. [...]

  21. jeremiah blume says:
