    Having ridden both, I thought the GES course was actually more fun.

    I was there the other day riding the X/C track. When I was done A truck pulled up and the guy asked if I wanted to ride the GES track, Thank You Mike for the shuttle to the top. That track is FUN and I did it on my 6" all mountain bike.

    Ya, it was an awesome course! ESC racers have the oppurtunity to ride the WC course in a few weeks minus the container jump!
