Lessons Learned from Race Reports

  • Course starts out with a long climb, then rolling and a quick, steep drop, then a quick steep ascent, then a long downhill back the same climb you came up
  • Leave some gas in the tank for after the first hill, as you’ll still have plenty of rollers and the long downhill to run
  • Pictures of the course don’t look very technical, and it looks like wide singletrack or a gravel doubletrack
  • Once you’re on the final descent, push the pace if you have anything left and enjoy it!
