Heathwb...I went there last year to check out he course. Its real nice and I'm sure the event is cool, but my issue was that any local that rides soemthing like this will have such a better advantage, it's just too far for me to get to know it enough for me to compete. I've thought about this alot and my only conclusion to this senerio is to do it like the older "scott trials" events (i used to love theose). It would make it fair for anybody that cant ride there regularly if you had sections that were not ridden by anybody, I know tough to do, but really, the enduro racing is biased towards locals (when all else is considered equal). I'm from early XC days and would like to see races like this, but with all those hills in it...non-stop action for 20+ miles!!
Hope the racecourse is dry and the days are sunny!
I still may be there, just in a different capacity.

I do see your point. Funny thing is no one local has won the event. First year was won by a team from Columbus that only had rode there once. Last year it was won by a team from Medina, and solo was won by a man from New Jersey, and a woman from North Carolina. ???
