Sydor Chat Room Set
We spoke with Alison earlier today and now have a definite time for the Chat Room session we will be hosting at Mont Ste Anne. Alison will be online, live, to answer your questions and comments one week today. To be precise, Alison Sydor will be online on June 27th, between 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm EST. This means that for those on the East Coast, you will be one to one and a half hours ahead, and Vancouver participants should be online between 5:00 and 6:00 pm. Please let your friends, newsgroup members, etc. know about the Chat Room - this is Alisonâ€šs first internet chat session, so we want to make her feel welcome! You will enter the Chat Room via our Mont Ste Anne website, at www.mtbworlds.com We will be asking you to participate in a practice session of the Chat Room later this weekend - stay tuned for details.
We also spoke with Alison about tomorrowâ€šs World Cup race in Vermont (Mount Snow). She said that the course was in good shape, as long as it did not rain, when the profusion of roots and rocks would make it very treacherous. Unfortunately, as we told her, the rain that just passed through our area is on its way to her. We will report on the World Cup (women tomorrow, men Sunday) as the results come in.
The World Cup website is up and running. If you havenâ€št visited it yet, you can either click the button on our homepage, or go directly to: www.mtbworlds.com Next week we will put up the current standings (after Mount Snow), and will provide regular updates on course conditions, race and rider news, etc. in the News and Results section.
