Bristol Mountain Super G

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Sorry if this is considered spam, but New York Masters is holding a Super G race at Bristol Mountain on Friday February 20. We're looking for a big field (Bristol is pressing us for numbers) so if anyone in the Northeast is interested we'd welcome you!

More information at nymasters.org-the contact is Jack Eisenschmidt.

 

I've never skied one before, but I'm going to give it a shot.Guys who've raced them say it's just like we normally ski, except with gates...........besides it's my 57th birthday. Gotta do something crazy to celebrate!

I was there last month for a combined... and lets just say the Super-G wasn't all that hard. Just don't get late on the 1st pitch. If you can stay on line there the rest is cakewalk. It was my first Super-G as well, and I had fun. I just wish they had a better "jump".

Have fun, John.  Nicest speed event you'll find in the area, without heading east to Gore. The pitch on top makes the event sporty.   Stay clean and keep driving forward.  Attach it from the front seat.

Hmmmm... I haven't worked a Friday since before Christmas... should I start this week?

 

Are there any training runs available? I've never run a SG before.

Thanks for the encouragement, guys. It should be fun! My expectations are low other than finishing, but home hill advantage should help-I've skied that slope hundreds of times, usually at a pretty good clip.

 

Greg, AFAIK no training runs (too bad), but it should be a good time. C'mon over for the day and kick some butt!

You dont need training runs for the Bristol SG. I did it last year with absolutly NO experience and did VERY well. I didnt even have SG skis, just used some long GS skis...its fun. DO IT!!!!!!!

they running it Comet to Lower Rocket?

 

I had planned on skiing but tore my rotator cuff and fractured the ball joint in my shoulder. Season probably over. Will know more later in the week but doesn't look good.

Do we need to preregister for this race? And if so, how?

To answer the last two posts :

 

The race is run on Comet (actually it starts on the flats above Comet) to Outer Orbit which is the southern side of Rocket.

 

Preregistration is great only because we need to show Bristol the numbers before the race. Nancy Fella is the administrator for NY Masters and you can contact her at fellanj@aol.com. I think the entry fee is $60.00 if you need a lift ticket.

 

Should be a good time with a fun after race party featuring a chili cook off and of course beer!
