I'm expecting that since there is an E Bike cat that they will go off at the same time as the  Expert Men.  E  stands for Expert right?

Anyone know what the race course will be? My daughter, 8, doesn't want to sign up until she has a chance to ride it first.
Thanks

Wasn't planning on doing these sadly with other goals in mind, the new location does spark some interest.

An e-bike category at the same time as anyone else on the course... just screams an accident waiting to happen.

But will there be a heckling section with the Barney the song blasting over speakers?   Wink

Very curious about the route.

Are the course(s) finalized?  Will they be marked for pre-riding this weekend?

Yes you can ride it during the week for sure.  When I rode it last weekend, the lady at the gate (and a sign) said they were only open for members on the weekend, but she waved me thru anyway.  looks like maybe there is a day-use fee, too(???)

Great read..
Thanks for reminding me why I don't do this..

Saw the crowd, turned around and went to the YMCA side. Went by a few children casually riding with their dad, and that was fine with me.  Cool

Does that give you enough of a clue?*

I think it's a great venue.  Slow, sloppy, single-file, muddy, singletrack is a lot more fun when it's mixed up with faster sections.  It's kind of nice to see a mix of bikes and riders do well.
