I rode the course last Sunday.
It was my third mtb ride this year, (I've been doing the bmx thing for the past three years).
I haven't raced a XC mtb race in over ten years, but I figured what the hell, with all of those base miles I've piled on, I'd go see what things looked like.
Remembering that I used to race here a lot, back in '93 - ''97, the place really hasn't changed all that much. The first hill climb loops are basically the same as back then. The fire road from Inspiration point is the same, but they have cut some single track from just before the old switchbacks, which wasn't around back then.
The finishing single tracks and fireroads are the same as they ever were.
The place is great, and Kerry and Bev have been running the program for nearly 20 years!
It's definitely worth going to, I just need a little more preparation...like actually riding.
I could ride the race, just really wouldn't be able to race the race.
You'll go back for more.
