Weather and what-all for this year's event

It's been cloudy and raining every afternoon since Labor Day. This has had me gnashing my teeth and muttering. A repeat of last year's Rocky Mountain Hurricane?!?

Looks like that might be a no:

If this is right, we're going to have some classic autumn weather. Clear. but probably also COLD overnight.

Speaking of overnight, full moon? No sir.

It'll be a thin waxing crescent, but that won't matter at all to us, because it will be setting an hour before the start. No moon kids. Stars should be brilliant though. There aren't many streetlights up on the Continental Divide either. Look for an unobstructed but shivery view.

Bring your warm stuff!

Getting ready to get at it for 2010

One Week.

The view from the High Point of the Vapor Trail 125 course for 2010. 12,600 ft. elevation.

Here it comes, another Vapor Trail 125. One week from right now there will be about 50 people fiddling with gear, twiddling their thumbs, or maybe chewing the nails off their thumbs.

One really cool thing is that the good people from are going to be covering our little event. Most of our riders will be identifiable as little blips on a map that you can pull up on the web at Check us out. Wish us luck!
