Was lucky enough to ride here today (invite only with JMBC club ride) and it is going to be a great race.

Some super speedy downhills, some climbs where you have to graft hard, and some freshly cut single track. Really nice place to ride.

I'll definitely be going to this race. Also its for a good cause

p.s. I have no affiliation with the place or event :-)

Was muddy but enjoyed it. I think some sections were cut out due to the rain. Like the river crossing. And I suspect it reduced the single track
