The videos I've seen look great, but most of the written reviews I've read suggest that it is not for light weights.

I am curious, what is Y'all's take on it ?

I am entry level intermediate and I am considering riding there soon.


Thanks,

Ted

I was pretty comfortable at Flat Rock, if it's only a little more technical at Tapatio then I am not too concerned.

Thanks for your help :)

Well.... I'm back :eek: hehe


Frankly, I found it to be way beyond my skill level. If I go back I'm wearing body armor.:)

I made the whole course but I walked a big chunk of it, especially after the bruised ribs :D ( true story )

Any way I think what did me in was the large quantity of loose rock on both ascents and descents in and amongst tight climbing and descending switchbacks.

I think I read that the racer guys did that loop 3 or 4 times during a big norba race some years back. Guess that's what it means to be Pro. :)

Anyway, I am off to buy some advil and contemplate next weekends adventure. :D


Hope you guys had a good weekend !

Oh ! I forgot to mention, their is a secondary loop off the main loop, near the top. That's the one I found tough.

Good luck with the ribs; mine took over 4 months to heal this time around.

I got the impression that the trail has deteriorated, their were sections where I felt like I was riding on marbles.
