I"ve never done the XC race (usually do the DH race)...

How many ounces should I put in my camelbak?

Full (or nearly full) is heavy. I don't mind carrying the weight if I'll need it, but also don't want to carry a bunch of unnecessary weight.

So...How much should I take?

It depends largely on how long you think you'll be out there. Take a guess on that and add a bit of water to whatever you'd normally bring for that amount of time since it's at elevation.

I'd guess that most liquid is consumed on the climb in that race and it gets hot on that fireroad as the day goes on. It pays to be a good climber and get out of the sun as soon as you can.
