    Does anyone have any information on the Devil's Den DH race next weekend? The MDHCS website hasn't been updated in months..

    If the race is on Saturday is there practice on Friday?

    That course is badass. good rock gardens, smoking fast fire road and plenty of jumps/drops. If your gonna make one of the MDHCS races this is the one. The race is sat am, with practice on friday and sat am.

    here's a couple of pics

    first road gap (about 18ft with wooden kicker)


    finish line jump/roadgap (about 30ft long by 8ft vertical drop with dirt kicker)


    new stunt for this year

    Nice Pics, it looks fun. Is the DH area easy to find once in the park or will there be information posted at the info center?

    I recieved a flyer in the mail and practice is on saturday and the race is on sunday they changed it this year. The course is gonna be 40-50% new ,i doubt the wooden stunts will be in the race i heard they got torn down and a new finish line not the drop gap from years past.

    The wooden stunts are gone, but any gaps, jumps or drops has a ride around section
