Racing today oh yea!

Had rain last night, it is not raining now and looks like it will be dropping to 20-30 % chance by late morning. Majority of course will drain very well - will probably have just enough mud holes to make it fun!

Trail conditions as of 4/14/09 are very good. Even with all the rain from Sunday, the course drains very well and we had only a few wet spots by Tuesday night. We expect 30% chance of rain Friday and maybe Saturday.

Course is already rough marked with ground arrows.

Primitive Camping is available at the main parking/ pavilion area.

Swag includes a Trek 820 from Bicycle Specialists and an Alpha Rack from Kuat Racks.

Come on out and Race!
