as long as its not the same week as D2R2 (which imo is a much better ride) I am good with that and think its the right thing to do. Farmers and D2R2 back to back weekends will be... intersting.

Curious about your preference for D2R2. I've done both and enjoy both but I prefer the FD course (except for the muddy mess at the beginning). And the much smaller number of riders.

I prefer the D2R2 course personally (and yes the muddy mess at the beginning and then more muddy single track mess later on before lunch) but I just like the whole event more, the camping and the lunch and peaches and the whole vibe. Also its nice to be able to choose what you want to do, 100, 115, ect... I just think its a better event. Don't get me wrong, Farmers is a great event but if you gave me both and to pick I would not even think twice.

As far as number of riders, I aways do the 100k at D2R2 and imo is the perfect amount of riders, always see someone but its never packed.

i definitely prefer the "start when you want" format of D2 and not the mass start like FD.

i'm with R3 in that i like the whole D2 set-up. makes for a nice weekend.

i'm in for TGN

I signed up for the 75, but could consider switching. I figured that I wouldn’t be racing it. But 50 may be enough too.

Course looks awesome! Any race with a free pint of ale at the end is a good one.

ahha, I was about to say that is all of them but then I remember doing this ride one time and they did not have any beer at the end and I really wanted one so I will agree with that sentiment.
