Race Dilemma

I was worried this would happen.  The date for the 2009 Sac River 12 hour good time race has been announced.  It's Sept 12th, the same day as the Midwest Fat Tire Series Castlewood ICCC race.

I rode solo in the Sac River race last year and had a great time.  I've been looking forward to the race all year; plus it's on my home turf so it deserves my support.  But the Fat Tire races have also been great and I've got a chance at a top 3 finish in the overall standings at the end of the season if I finish well in the rest of the races.  After the Spanish Lake race I'm in third overall behind JP and Rock.  I think I could miss one race and still be eligible for the end of year awards, but I need all the points I can get.

Another thing to consider is if I ride in the Sac race I'll need to pick up another (expensive) battery for my light because I don't want a repeat of last year where I run out of juice 45 minutes before the end.

I know the calender is packed this time of the year with a race somewhere every weekend, but I wish they could have pushed the date back to mid October or even done it on Labor Day weekend.

Oh well, I've got plenty of time to mull this over, and there's no bad decision, it just sucks to have to make a choice....
