Fast and swoopy? Rocky and techy? All of the above?Best singletrack of the entire H2H series right there. This year's course is mind-blowing with the inclusion of "My Favorite Trail," which they can finally include since the dirt road you cross to get there was closed to traffic this year.
Absolutely worth making the drive up from Jersey for...
As i said before, this place is about as much fun as you can have on a bike.
Just noticed something :hmmm:
The flyer on wmba has the start times as beginner- 9:00, sport- 10:30 and expert- 1:00
Bikereg has the start times as beginner- 8:00, sport- 9:45 and expert- 12:45
I wouldn't count on anyone starting on time except for the beginners. There is no way all beginners will be off that course in an hour and a half for sport to start at 10:30. I road it today and it is very tough and technical and in talkiing to some fast expert riders they are saying 50-58 minuites per lap. I think you will see beginners out there over 2 hours. You have to remember that in order to turn a lap an hour you have to average 9.2 miles an hour and on that tight twisty technical single track it will be very hard to do even for the best riders. I don't think many if any sport riders will be in under 2 hours.
I just hope it stays dry for the race.
I think we all hope for the same. It's nice that the race is in Sept. instead of Oct. this year- better odds of avoiding the rain.
If the weather.com forecast for this week holds true, we could have the opposite issue- a course that's dry and dusty...
