I'm about to (finally) get my entry in for Sea Otter. Besides the downhill, it looks like there is time in my schedule to enter the Super-D. My question is: does anybody here know specifically what this year's S.O. Super-D course is supposed to be like? It seems from what I've read about a lot of the NORBA Nats, the XC guys clean up because there is too much climbing or not enough real down. I've seen footage of last year's course which looked like a snore-fest; but this year's is purported to be much different. The last super-d I did was on my AS-X, which was competitive on courses like the one at the Schweitzer, ID Nats. Now that I'm on a Gran Mal, I'm unsure. I don't want to waste entry fee money on a race that is going to be able to be dominated by guys on full-on XC bikes. That was never the intent of Super-D but it's gotten that way.
