Expert: Prolog + loop + loop + loop
Pro: Prologo + loop + loop + loop + loop

you are correct sir.

prolog plus appropriate number of laps. the prolog is 1.5 miles and laps are 6.5

we use the prolog to split the field up a bit and because the campground singletrack is so fun!! you will only do the prolog loop off the start. after that when you come out of the woods at the base of the hill you make a right and ride up it again.

Dirt Rider Demon

Thanks for posting the map, Tommy and I are always riding there and I too ride there alone (getting lost) He only lives about 20 minutes north of Stewart. Now the problem ... I had posted last weekend after we rode there, there is a Dirt Rider Demon tearing up the single track with his motorcycle. Being a former MX racer (18 years) I feel bad for being a rat (me likes cheese) :p
But this guy must be stopped! :getsome: I say we kill em, than we shoot em

Chrrrrrrrrrrrrrristina ... :)

Is this course the same as last year? And cool offer on the carpool, but my car only fits 2 bikes (Toyota Yaris) so I'm out...

new course this year. you might see a little bit of familiar stuff, like the prolog, but lots of new singletrack.

this course is for the darkhorse gallop.
the darkhorse 40 is august 3rd! for info coming on that soon. you can always check for updates on http://darkhorse40.blogspot.com/ and http://teamdarkhorseracing.blogspot.com/

we know about the moto's and we have been trying to work with the dec. its a sticky situation. it is technically illegal for them to be riding in there and the dec has been ticketing them but that only goes so far.

Ringwood TM Saturday? I need my paydirt so I think I'll be hitting that too. Though I'm supposed to road bike with a friend. Decisions.
Let's talk later in the week about Sunday. Got a promising interview tomorrow so if it goes well I can kick back with lots of biking this weekend.

ok the pot gets sweeter!

ok, the prolog is 1.7 miles. at the end of the prolog you will turn onto a dirt road for your first climb up the hill. at the top of this climb, only after the pro-log, will be a $10 cash preem for all beginner and sport classes!
you must grab the cash as you go by!

D. horse,

I'm looking forward to checking out the new singletrack you guys cut after the road climb. I'm going to try to get there this weekend. It looks like the weather is going to be hot.

BTW this is my favorite race:D.

peace,
