Just checked out the CC map on the site. I'm a bit confused (what else is new) about the start finish, it doesn't seem to connect. Anybody been up there yet? Is it marked? How many laps for each class? Anybody heading up this week for a pre-ride? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks. Happy 4th!
The start finish appears to be at the base of the lift, right in front of the base lodge. The map does not make sense, its just a rough approximation. Gerilynn and I rode 3 laps of the course today. I'll sum them up like this: Fun, Fun, Fun! This is a course that can not be missed! I turned in a 33:43 as my 3rd lap so the race will be fast and furious! The climbs up the left half of the mountain are tough, but very manageable with lots of room to pass. The downhill on the right side is sweet, I remember 3 different bermed turns in it. There are bridges galore too! Two of the bridges cross over the downhill runs. I spoke with one of the guys working on the course today, found out he designed and built it, he mentioned they are worried about the turn out. We need to make sure there is a NMBS race near us. Its marked very well and you dont need a lift ticket or anything to ride. The mountain appeared to be closed, but there was still a handful of people riding.
Sounds fun. I'm hoping to get up there sometime early this week to check it out. Thanks for the info and see you at the races!
