    Race #2 will be held on May 18th at Dark Mtn on the standard super D course. The attached event flier has tentative dates for the rest of the series as well. The first race was a pretty good time and expect this one to be the same. Hope everyone can come on back out!:D

    Just a week off...we've worked on the lower section of the course. The last berm was rebuild and the jump over the logs. You can rail the berm as fast as you want now...no brakes at all! Hope everyone can make it out!

    It's not looking good for this weekend. Forecast is for thunderstorms on Friday & Saturday so with all the rain we've had the trails will probably be soaked. The good news is next week looks promising with the rain moving on out!!! Finally!

    It would make my day if someone photoshopped a pic of Matt's face onto a European weather girl right about now ... :D

    Just received an update from the Rangers:

    Trails are closed because in some places they are 3 feet under the flooded lake. We will give them two days to dry out after the water recedes below them today. It is looking like we will open all trails on Sunday Morning.

    It will be the same course as last time. It's starts on the Core trail at the top, cuts into a small section that's not on the map that connects down into #6 and finishes on the walking track. It's pretty fun and flowy...weather is still looking good too!:D

    Will the course be taped off the day before the race?

    Yeah I'm going out Friday morning to tape everything off. The ride around for the jumps will be left open for XC riders until Saturday morning. All jumps will be required but all can be rolled.

    I'm ambivalent, whatever works easiest for you.

    Made a few runs this evening. Course is in awesome shape! Even if we get a little rain it will still be good, maybe even bit a little better. :thumb:

    A big thanks to everyone that came out and played around in the mud! Our next race is slated for August 10th. Hopefully it'll be dry for it!
