This weekend we pre-rode the next Winter Park course. It's similar to the last race, only backwards, with a few extra trails thrown into the mix. Luckily I'm a beginner so I don't have to do the extra 6 mile loop that sounds brutal, so that's good. It has A LOT of climbing. A LOT. I think the race will be fun but also really hard. Lots of fire road climbing, a few rooty/rocky climbs to make it hurt even more, and some quick downhills. I'm guessing it won't be my favorite race of the year, but I hope to make it through with a smile.
Chris took this picture, I LOVE IT. Good photographing Chris!
