The Course: The 2001 course features a 7 mile racing loop loaded with trails designed by mtn bikers. Each lap has over 1200 feet of total climbing with numerous switchbacks, jumps, log crossings and a lot of tight single track. The course has a lot of climbing and little room for transition. This could be the toughest 7 mile lap around! We took out all of those dreaded push climbs for 2001.

Out on the Course!
