So we're having a grand ole' time here on Thursdays in St. Louis, Texas-style. The only problem is with the Dirt Crits is that they only last for about a month. It is a month of "heinous epicnicity" though, where only true legs of quantanium prevail.
All that being said, there are other opportunities on the western horizon for similar riding. See here:
Dirty Thursdays at Swope Park!!!
Who: Cyclocross and mountian bikers alike!
What: Dirt crits, short track MtB, cyclocross, call it what you will!
When: 6:00 pm, Thursday evenings, July 15—October 28
Where: Swope Park, Camp Lake of the Woods
Why: Why not?
Format: Show and go, Format/course direction will change weekly
PLEASE MEET AT THE TOP OF THE HILL AT CAMP LAKE OF THE WOODS BY 6 PM THURSDAY EVENINGS IF WANTING TO RACE (near the Hogan)!!! YOU WILL STILL HAVE TO PARK AT THE MAIN TRAILHEAD AND RIDE THE HILL UP. ALL RACES ARE SUBJECT TO THE WEATHER/COURSE CONDITIONS.

Sounds fucking fantastic. If there is anyone who might be interested (once the Pfood Short Tracks are completed) in making a long day of it, we could head over to KC for some Landahl action during the day, get some food, then try out their Short Track before having a relaxing, although long, drive home. Columbia mates - might be more do-able for you jerks? Let's make some craziness happen - these things go all the way into late October!
These races are probably what Jesse Ventura was talking about in this scene:
