    Maybe this is it? The 2012 Preview. Looks like a period snuck into your link. Better to use Embed code anyway, rather than the URL. 45 this year baby!

    That Video sure wansn't made today, I rode it today and the decent after the water tank was a mudfest. several riders had to stop and clear the tires because they couldn't move any further. I liked it, made for a fun, slippery and sloppy ride that pulled you wherever the trail wanted to. It will be a killer if it's like that on race day but it should be nice and dry.

    I rode 2 laps today and the first lap was going great until..... my rear tire became cemented to frame on ranch downhill... amazingly less than 2 hours later on our second lap (around noon) we had no problem with this section.. a little squirrelly but rolled right through..

    Road it Friday around noon. At the tech section, hand to get off and carry the bikes down because the mud was too caked on the tires to turn. It definitely was a mud fest.

    Rode the course around 3:00. Downhill section was tacky but tire didn't pick up any mud. It seems like the course cleans up fairly quickly. I will say that the trails felt real sluggish, though they looked dry on the surface. I am hoping that it was not just me and had to do with the conditions. Either way, I am going to still gut out the 30 but I am feeling very underprepared.

    Thanks to the guys who worked on the single track. I think it is still difficult enough to reward people with some bike skills but has made it a safer ride for the race. Looking forward to it.

    Yeah when I went through the mud area it was semi dry too. I started at noon and finished around 2:30. It was a hard climb, wouldn't wan to do that 3x. But I know some who would. NIce track guys. Hope the weather is great for the weekend.
    I need to ride more and work less.

    Okay, I prerode most of the course on Friday. We started at the school, and then went up to Hardscrabble. The course was pretty well marked, until we got down at the bottom of the muddy hill. Since most of that was walking down the hill because the mud was gunking up the wheels, we didnt' want to risk more mud, so we took the highway from Strawberry back to Pine.

    Is the technical section mention earlier *after* that section, or was it the hill we climbed down (miles 8.7 to 10.3 on the included Strava map.

    The technical section parallels the highway that you rode from Strawberry to Pine.
