“Lots of switchbacks, a shady singletrack, and a sand-trap.”— Kevin Garrett
Featured Race - Jul 26, 2018
In addition to the Pedalfest course, there are several fire roads—many are more than challenging, but good if you're in an exploratory mood. The race course itself is a mixture of dirt singletracks with lots of switchbacks, some fire road, a short stretch of pavement, and a stretch of deep sand.
There is also a variation of the race course for eMTBs, which includes riding up a rutty, loose fire road with a grade that tops out at 19.5%. Otherwise, pretty much the same course.
From there, up a paved road, and turning down into another bowl with a tight, steep switchback leading out. Then up to circle a sometimes-pond at the top of a hill. Down a fire road, through the "sand trap."
Next, you ride into the woods for some real fun, including a few whoop-dee-dos and a "duck!" situation. Then, up a fire road again to ride the Moose Antler Switchbacks—both antlers being downhill with an open high-plain ride in between.
Now into some downhill switchbacks—the last being quite treacherous (said the rider who wiped out there just yesterday). Lastly, a couple of turns and straights to get you back to the start line.
