Race Course:
The course is a challenging 1 mile, fastest at around 50km or so, but some riders slower. The pavement is quite gnarly, with numerous cracks and small potholes, but it is ride-able and should be quite the racecourse for those comfortable with gnarly pavement. The run is roughly 1-2 mins to get down with 7 corners including 7 switchbacks.

Safety:
Due to the road’s short length and the fact that it is located close to 2 medical facilitates and first aid attendees on site, there will be minimal hay bails; However, the road provides plenty of space to wait for safe passing or getting back on the course, and it consists of mostly switchbacks. Helmets and gloves and knee pads minimal are required.
