So will studded tires be needed?
Comment by Marty Weigel on January 18, 2010 at 8:12pm
studs will likely help... it really depends on temps this week.

Eh, no studded tires in my stable. I assume it will be doable without. Looks like the weather should be tolerable.

is this a rain or shine type thing, weather is not looking hot for sat but i would love to bring the pugs out to race.

all of our events are "conditions permitting" We will not be racing if it's raining... stay tuned.

Just (2 PM Thurs) came from CR.. trails are in 'moderate' condition. If we race Sat., I suggest big tires with a studded on the front if you have one, both if you have 2.
Probable course, start/finish just east of the lodge, down the Ski Hill through Sanford & Son to the river. Follow the river into Alpha, easier section of Alpha, return on old River Road. Climb Craters of the Moon back to S/F. No Cap, No Kevin's Heaven, No O'Malley's Woods. 2 or 3 laps..
Chance of rain for Sat..

I studded my own tires last night- We will see how long they hold air.
