Looks like maybe, perhaps, possibly, the last of the rain was today. Clearing tonight with low probability of rain all week. That said I would check that damn weather report 3 times a day. The Catskills may not be the Rockies but they are still mountains and if you don't like the weather wait 5 minutes...

I'll be there Thursday thru Sunday. Course marshaling the UCI DH course for pretty much every training and race session. Training for and then racing in the Gravity East DH race, entering CAT-3. Supporting two of my buddies who will be racing CAT-1 XC on Sunday morning. VERY EXCITE!!

Windham WC trail open to public?

Last year Windham opened up the WC and Citizen trails to the public the weekend after the race. Does anyone know if they are going to do that again this year?

i went two days after this year as opposed to one day after last year when the course was still in tact.

they were breaking down the course and i missed the bottom of the course as the marker tape (shimano) was gone

but i have had the good fortune to mtb in the area this week (tuesday) and did jockey hill (kingston) and elm ridge (windham).

here's a pic from this years race course
