What to Expect
World class style course a short drive away. At just under 5 miles and 500 feet vertical per lap, this challenging course will give you everything that should be in a mountain bike race. Sharp turns and cornering that will test your technical abilities, punchy climbs that will test your raw strength, fast descents that will test your guts, and multiple laps that will test your will! To say there are a few turns in this course in an understatement.
