will this be the sweet course from the graveyard all the way down to the field?
Yes curious about the course. I will try and make it out anyways as any practice I can get is a good thing. Its been a LONG time since I have been near the graveyard lol. I have been riding seatac trails for almost 8 years now, way before the flow park existed. A lot has changed and I guess I should check out some other trails.

is there a purpose to this? or just for fun...
Having fun, getting better at racing, meeting new people, and any other purpose you can think of. We want everyone to have a good time, thats the goal.

how late are you going to run this event.
We'll wrap it up around 7:30, but times will be availible almost immediately so you can come and go when ever you want.

It will start at the grave yard and end down on the access road. It's super fun.

The course is pretty tame, you can bring just about any bike you want from an XC hardtail to a DH rig, I'll be bringing my 4"travel slalom bike so 5" of travel would be great.

Have you guys been setting up berms in that section? If so, THANK YOU!!!

I try to hit that trail heading in to the flowpark just to get warmed up and it seemed like there were way less flat corners, if any, on my way thru there today. In its current condition, even a dh rig could rail that section...no brakes and a few hard pedal-strokes is all you'll need.

Oh yeah...I plan on being there!
