 Really? I am not sure this year, the one from last year was pretty much an xc track.

 While Jared may have won, he’s going to be wishing he copied Curtis and worn a long sleeved jersey once that poison oak kicks in.

 I did an XC HIGH SCHOOL RACE there a couple weeks ago... and lemme tell you this: my local trail riding areas were taken off the race schedule because they were too technical.

The rulebook says the race trails have to be rideable for all riders of all skills... so that should give you an idea of how "tough" this course is.

Last thing. Josh Carlson's rotors are tiny. Why would an enduro fork have the possibility to go that small.

 I bet it's to match the 90mm of travel in the back.
