JR Petsko sent out this message, and I thought I would share it with you guys:
Special thanks goes out to, High Mountain Sports and ASCI! With out their help this event would not be possible!
Race Update: (Course Map)
Here is a basic map of the course for this weekend. I am still doing course work all this week so some spot may change slightly. (Course Map) As this is a ski resort the course will consist of MANY fire roads and double track section, rocks and long climbs. We are committed working with Wisp and ASCI to building more single track on the mountain so this event will become better each year. We are here for the long haul!
Parking and Start/Finish Location:
Please note that the event location is at the TOP of the mountain, NOT in the Wisp parking lot at the base of the mountain.(Directions here)
Event goes on rain, snow or shine!
