    The only technical climb is switchback going up to Skyland.

    FWIW, I ran 32/17 at Mayhem and probably 16 if I had that cog.

    That's the same one that was always in the race, right?

    We've got some people out there marking the course right about .... now. It's pretty easy to follow, you should be good to get around without too much trouble!

    Also, if you are headed out to pre-ride today, remember it is also opening day for trout fishing. Please don't park in boat house lot, and be considerate of those fishing from the shore - they've been waiting for spring too!

    Think I'm going to show up 32x20, pre-ride and have a 19 on standby.

    Do we know the real lap length?

    Someone posted 2 laps on Strava. Looks like 4.5 miles with 500' elevation. Up down up down up down. Not much flat.

    3 laps of SS will be like one loop at RV.

    Was this recorded with a Garmin or just the Strava app?
    Just the app alone does not handle the ups & downs well. It under estimates distance and climbs. At least that's my experience, backed up by seconds of research.

    I don't know. Not my Strava. But there were like 15 people on the ride so if you look at a few you'll get a good idea

    Did they add the gas line climb and slalom down? Or keep it the same

    OK, we're ready to go! There's been a lot of chatter about lap mileage etc. Please know we heard you, but with the conditions on trails like the White Trail (see attached pic taken this morning), we just couldn't bring ourselves to run a race on some of these more sensitive areas. We tried to set the course based on the H2H suggested running time, not mileage - 60-80 minutes for Cat. 2, 90-110 for Cat 1., etc. Some of you will love it! Some of you will not. We worked with the hand Mother Nature dealt us as best we could - early season races are a bit of a crap shoot, right? Thanks to everyone who has been supportive of racing's return to Ringwood - we'll be there bright and early tomorrow ready to ride!

    If anyone complains please send them here. You guys stepped in with a nice substitute jungle and the snow just melted last week.
    "Loops" in ringwood are actually really hard. So many good trails, they just don't connect in any looping order.

    Ok first timer and I pre rode today. I feel like crap. It felt like a lot more up then down. Hearing parents voices "I walked to and from school 5 miles uphill each way!" Ugh third time riding on the bike for the season and lap time of 60 mintues with stopping auto pause was 51 mintues. I noticed I did a lot of hiking. Ok I'm AMPED! For this race tomorrow thinking I won't sleep. Ok question Cat3 do I have to reg at 7:30am or is it 30 minutes before my race starts? Want to get there and watch CAT 1-2 but I can't get there before 930. Thanks guys I just finished washing the Mud off and can't wait to see everyone tomorrow.

    Not racing tomorrow, but just want to say nice job setting up this course. I had ridden some of the trails earlier this week and this is a really good course based on the conditions. Trying to add any of the other trails like poison ivy or lower white would not be prudent with the rain and snow melt we had recently.

    Good luck to all and have fun.
