Knog, you're the best. The raddest looking lights there are, hands down. I even have one of your N.E.R.D. computers amongst the sets of knog lights my house owns. This is also the second year they have sponsored the "The Lord of Griffith Two", and lemme tell you, there are some goodies for you guys to win... But if not, go support your LBS and pick up some Knog lights, it's the law. Thanks to my brothers from down under for supporting our races!!!

To All Racers, this Thursday race will be held at the Beautiful Echo Parke Lake. We have only raced the lake twice before (2007 All Messenger Race "Echo Park Lake MONSTER" & 2009 All Ladies Race "LAP DANCE"). This year we have again change the name of the course because the style/amount of racing will be different compared to previous years. The course is tight and dangerous so we're going to split the amount of racers into groups. Eventually we will end up with one group (group will consist of winners of initial group races). Races will begin immediately, one after another. Before the final race, final competing racers will have a fair amount of time to rest and drink a red bull or beer, which ever you prefer.
Spectators, please continue to come out. This will be our final Crit for the Summer. We will have a great view from Start/Finish Line (NASCAR Style). I have a feeling, we'll be seeing another great sprint finish.
If LAPigD do happen to show up, please let's be courteous and maintain order!
Keep your beers in paper bags!
