I'm planning to corner our graphic designer next week to develop a course map to post. In the meantime I'll try to describe the course.The Pork Chop Express said:Anyone know when the course map will be available? I know it is going to use part of the burn loop and the downhill course, but don't know the exacto course.
I looked at the map you provided (thank you very much), And didn't know if you could expand on the course alittle more for "us out of town folk." I would hate to show up "green" and smoke everybody!guard said:Finally got a course map...ended up hand drawing arrows to show flow. It in the thread below:
No problem, well there's definitely quite a bit of pedally since its super d but only a couple of slight uphills. It starts off somewhat flat on a fire road. The fire road drops downhill and then back to flat...maybe a very little uphill slope but almost flat. You pedal your butt off for about 60 yards and then come to an option. One you can hit a rock jump that is smooth as butter or you can slow down and hit a log pile or alternate way which will be slower. You're still on the fire road and once you land you pedal again for another 30 yards before hitting the first uphill. The uphill isn't real steep but steep enough so that you'll feel it. After topping the hill you'll go a little way and then hit the top section of the downhill course. The first thing you come to is a small log drop..only about a 14 inches high (it has away around as well) and then go through a very very small rock garden into a tight turn. You power out of the turn and hammer into a triple and then go a little way and hit a double (both can be rolled). After this you rocket back onto a single track section. Following the single track you hit two more jumps (both can be rolled) and then ride around the rim of the dh rock garden but you don't go through it. You stay to the right and continue to follow the single track. This takes you into the next uphill section which is short but you'll definitely be standing in order to get up it with any type of speed. You then go through a couple of draws and then hit up a small gravity cavity. After the cavity you continue on the single track for 100 yards or so. You'll come to a huge natural berm turn. After the berm you go a little ways and hit a small table top followed by a larger table top. After the table you're back on the single track for a short distance and hit a step down jump (can be rolled) into a berm turn and then pedal hard for another jump (rollable again). After that you hammer it on home.4000psi said:I looked at the map you provided (thank you very much), And didn't know if you could expand on the course alittle more for "us out of town folk."

Fred, from what Guard has told me it is more of a true Super D not just a DH course. Parts of the old DH run will be in it.shopvet said:ie is this a 5-8 minute "Super D," or a 4-5 minute DH run with some pedaling sections?
Any more info on getting a group together? Sounds like a good time.4000psi said:Thanks for the info on the course. It sounds like fun. I'm trying to get a group from Greenville SC to come and join in on the fun. I was joking about coming down and "smoking" everybody. I'm actually old, and out of my mind.
Not really. I'm kinda lazy and don't plan anything more than an hour beforehand usually. I guess I can change my ways. I'll start now. Does anybody from Gville want ot get up and go to this "gathering" and represent? I got a big truck and can fit some people in it. Darn, I feel like a new man already. I think I'm going to plan my retirement portfolio now. See ya!upstateSC-rider said:Any more info on getting a group together? Sounds like a good time.
