by Martin_S. Online Now Jan 5, 2004 at 4:32 AM

Hi All and Shalom: We are having a mountain bike race here in Arad, Israel on January 16th, 2004 (thats a Friday). There are two race courses. Elite and Expert race one course. Sport is the second. Anybody who would like to "drop by" and race or just do the "family" course is invited. See you there I hope, Martin

    Okay, if you can't make this date, come at another time. If you would like to do the course, but not as a race, but just as a ride, that is fine also. I have the whole area covered and since I have finished the design for this year, I am already working on the design for next years race. Martin

    Thats some revelation Annathrax... I´m afraid you just put me off racing with Martin, he is sure to be ahead of me and I could not peddle for laughing. By the way Martin... is your course all downhill... remember we have all been celebrating Xmas and New Year... our reserves are low. Happy New Year Stace

    Dear Anna, Stace and Carmen, would you please get off my birthday suit, you guys are scaring the kids.... And as for YOU Stace, do I need to bring up the subject of my discussion with Carmen while our cats where chewing on certain "things"..... As for Anna, my sexy fritatta, you should not complain about MY birthday suit after going to see all those statues just because they WERE in their birthday suits. Since this is a serious message here, inviting people to come and race in a legitimate mountain bike race, please keep your "racey" comments to a level like you would observe at home, or I will call your parents. Martin

    [*By the way Martin... is your course all downhill... remember we have all been celebrating Xmas and New Year... our reserves are low.*] ------------------------------------------------------------------- If it's Arad to the Dead Sea, you can't get more downhill than that. Heck, even *I* could manage a course like that. :)

    Anna, your apology is accepted and I will call the post office and ask for the letter to your mother back. Will be looking forward to our bike ride and we will see what you have to teach me ^O^ Claus you are invited to come ride in this area anytime and I will be glad to point you in the right direction if I cannot come with you (which would be better ;O))) Steve, the race route for the Elite is mostly single trek and some very technical, the Sport route is 22 km long with some wicked uphills and one serious downhill that I would walk ^O^, but if you want to do only downhill, we will have to look further, I know most of the routes here and have developed a few myself and have also pointed out many of the routes to Eli Set who has written two books on the area.

    Hi Hilla: The family course is about 6-8 km long and on a route that is okay for most young riders without any dangerous or technical sections, it is just to introduce them to the desert at its edge. Not really exciting, but then you will have some people who are good riders and others who are out for the first time.... If you would like I have a powerpoint picture of the Elite and also the Sport, but the Family and Young Childrens race have not been put on line. If you want to ride come on down... Martin
