that bad everywhere?
Sitting bear and south end got the worst that I saw where the tread is just liquified. Luckily, they stayed off new timber. Pickle and hemlock were unused as well. Curious to see what Plymouth looks like.

So if conditions are as bad as they sound someone should go and document the conditions of the trails, thoroughly.
The.patk reps need to see what happens during these events in bad weather.
I've dealt with this and they will be able to deal with it in the future if they know the kind of damage that can be done

I will try to visit this week; I tried to go yesterday but it started raining on my way up and did not want to add insult to injury.

If folks are out riding, please take some photos of damaged areas. Thx.

After the jungle race they are well aware, as is Ragnar.

This is nothing new. Many mtb races go on no matter how muddy the trails with the same results. Actually worse because bike tires make deeper ruts than feet. It's the sad "rules don't apply to us" mentality.

Not too sure what you are actually talking about. In more recent times, we cancel MTB races around here with bad weather. Ringwood earlier this year rings a bell. I'll remember for next year, remove more signs on the trails and reroute them to no mans land.

Maybe something new? There used to be many threads about mtb races in terrible conditions

That’s really what it comes down to, IMO. How much money is changing hands? If it’s only a pittance, then the impact should be much more closely regulated. But if Ragnar is paying salaries of park personnel then I don’t think trail wear is much of a concern in the eyes of the LM. Hopefully, the permit fees are set in proportion to the size of the disturbance caused by the event.

he's talking about the Jungle race last year, so by recent times guessing you mean this year.

spoke with Ragnar via email, this guy Jesse... they assure me they are coming back to deal with things. there are deep tire tracks on some single tracks they said were the result of "emergency runner evacuations" whatever that is. the park seemed to be oblivious when I spoke to them.
