Oh god does that look fun. So some freinds and I are debating....whats the difference(other than the obvious) tween the Tour and the Race? Why would one pick one over the other? Is it the same course? I've seen the website, and they describe the course in type. I ain't reading that! Gimme a map so I can SEE where the trail goes!lanpope said:I can't wait...Gonna try SS this year...
Anyone remember this?
Yeah, I think I will give it a go SS this year. Last year all I could think was that at least my ti ss would be lighter pushing it up those hills.BThor said:SS eh?.....we rode together last year...I was on the Ti strong SS...

The gang from Hot Springs is doing there annual New Year's Day ride on the Womble. The ride distance varies and may be a Lake North fork to Lake Ouachita, or Lake Ouachita to Lake North fork to Lake Ouachita...with bail out options along the way.
This will be a great way to see some of the Oucachita Challenge course and ride the womble.

This is what I was thinking re: the course as well. I guess we'll see.mtbkendall said:Lanpope - The race course in my opinion is easier. The climb up Big brushy is not near as bad and then you get to go down everything we climbed last year. Blowout and chalybeat are steaper from the race side but shorter and again with some good long downhills, then as you said the womble is great either way. Last year I ran a 32-19 and felt like it was a pretty good gear on the WW's.
