I have received numerous e-mails in regards to this weekends race so I will try to answer some of your questions regarding how this weekends race will be routed. This is preliminary and may be subject to change for the Sport course. Team Alterra will be out riding the course tonight to check out flow of the course and tweak a few things out. Last minute changes were made, and late yesterday evening, Ty was told that he can not run any racers down the golf course. So, Ty was up very late last night cutting a new trail to get down the hill, UGH!
They will do the same as last years course with the exception of the switchback descent and take the new path downhill.
Probably same as last years course but no switchback descent. Not sure if Sport will ride switch back climb or do craters. Some input from Sport riders would be appreciated. Some think that riding up the switch back corners are tough and could cause a bottleneck.
Sufferoramma, from the bottom of the switchback all the way to the top of Crystal Ridge Ski Hill where the shed is in place:)
Again, subject to change. Alpha Trails will not be used.
Ty plans on having the course pretty much marked by the end of Friday. You are welcome to ride the course which is partially marked at this time. Please respect those working on the trails and stay out of areas or sections that are muddy. Remember to wash your bike at home after riding Crystal Ridge to remove non-native invasive plant species garlic mustard and buckthorn and to prevent further spreading.
Thanks for your cooperation!
