I'm looking forward to this race and hope Jeanie will join me.

BTW: how will you do the final series standings? Will all 5 race results count or only the best 3 of the first 4 plus series finale?

Your right we will be climbing Anza Jackson to the Y and some great downhill from there. Uphills wilI be a combo of singletrack & fireroads. Promise it won't be too painful, but will have some world class singletrack. It will be a great course, a really fun one. I am trying to figure a way I can race my course!!! Don't think the wife will let me though! Glad you'll be there. The more that show up the better the competition.
Thanks,

A request: Please do not use permanent paint to mark the course. The blue paint from last summer's race was, and at some spots still is, an eyesore.

USA Cycling requires an annual license for experts/pros. You are more than welcome to ride the sport class with a single day license though!
Sorry these are USA Cycling rules.

Just rode past a short section of the course yesterday, and they used signs plus flagging - no paint.

There are two nice downhills for everyone: Tule Pond and Lyman Wilson.
Climbing Coit Spring/Cattle Duster/Domino Pond will be a first for me. That'll be tough, no wonder the cat 3s skip this and go up Coit Road instead, but they'll end up riding a lot of fire road.

P.S. Note that the CCCX race on the same day has been postponed.

P.P.S. Oops, this is J.L.'s posting. Menso forgot to log off.

Going up Coit/Cattle Duster/Domino is quite nice. There are two killer hills on it, but they are pretty mellow otherwise.

There is also a nice Anza downhill on the way to Grapevine.
The downhill to Kelly Lake sucks. Steep and loose rocks. That's were I'll make up time on you ;)

Just got an email from the Back Country Ranger with strict notice for volunteers to stay out of the course area on Saturday, all day. This is a really exciting event! I wish all riders a safe ride and a great performance. Cattle Duster and Domino haven't had any trail work on them and are very narrow and severely guttered in places. These will be very demanding sections. Who knows, with the horde riding through, it might steamroll the trail into submission. The top of Domino will be cyclo cross portage. When the trail crew gets to work on it later, I am sure they'll have a mess to look at for sure. These are great loops for all categories.

Good luck Dan!
