    The dream becomes real

    Jim Northey, Sean A and others have dedicated themselves over the last few years to move this from a gleam in an eye to a reality. Fantastic!

    Check out video of the added trail sections

    Check out this video of the 30+ miles of additional single track between Forresthill and Auburn. These trails will make an awesome magic carpet finish to the the race. TS100 more single track for 2012.mov - YouTube

    the singletrack from foresthill to auburn is insanely fun. The first five to seven miles are either coasting or light braking. There are 3 or 4 creek crossings, with one tricky one on a tight downhill switchback.

    Are they making you climb out ruckachucky for the finish?

    I'm very curious about that as well....would it end at ruck-a-chucky a the bottom? Or climb up and end somewhere around Drivers Flat? Or somewhere else?

    The addition from Foresthill to Auburn is a significant game changer. It adds a third part to the course. High country, canyons (including Devil's Thumb), then Foresthill to Auburn. Just like the other two events, much of the race will get interesting here. There is a ton of rail and a ton of climbing left in that last part. Stagecoach will be drama. Can you say E P I C er?

    If they are adding 30mi of single track it will have to be past drivers flat. It's under 15mi to the bottom ofruck a chucky. Unless of course jimmy is adding more towards the beginning of the race.

    I am in - I managed 11:28 last year and hope to improve on that this year.

    Sounds like the route is going to a lot tougher so that means more training.

    Is this 100 miles spread out evenly over 5-10 weekends?
    Since I don't like writing, I don't have a blog to pimp. This space for rent.

    So is there a one time exemption to allow bike's on this section for the race, if so has it been fully approved yet? Any chance this may open up to be legal all the time? I think think this would be a good candidate for an odd/even day kinda of thing in the future, as it would be kinda hard to get around a horse in some sections..

    Here's the deal so far....

    So before this gets out of hand as to where we are going, here is what we have right now. I am taking care of the ASRA permit process and it looks like it is going well. They have some concerns about the course as they should, but overall they have been very easy to work with so far.
    Forest Service is on board as is the city of Auburn, so it is coming together nicely. We all know that can change so keep your fingers crossed

    Right now we are ending in Auburn regardless.

    How we get there is in flux right now and likely will be for some time.

    There are ways to get to Auburn without taking the California Street/Peachstone section of Western States that is currently closed to bikes. Ultimately we would like to run that section of trail in the race and it would be a one day exemption from the current ban.
    Many hurdles exist to this coming to fruition and it may take years to get to that point, we are committed to doing our best to make it happen .

    Not preaching here, but people riding it illegally and posting here about it will not help the matter. If you think State Parks and the powers that be at Western States and Tevis foundations and the many other horse advocacy groups don't visit this site you are fooling yourselves. I realize that some people think that it should be open to bikes, and that fight has been going on for years( yes, unfortunately the odd/even consideration was shot down years ago) but the fact remains it is closed and any conflicts on it will put a serious hurt on any further consideration by State Parks to open it to bikes, even for a day.

    So that being said, here's what we have right now pending State Parks approval( and a whole bunch of other agencies). Likely the course will remain unchanged from Soda Springs Rd to Foresthill, we'll likely lose some of the stuff in Royal Gorge though. Getting to the bottom of McKeon Ponderosa is what were stuck on right now, either way it will be fun. Once you get to the campground at Ruck-a-Chuck you will climb Drivers Flat Rd to the North side of the FDLT, then on to the Connector, Confluence trail all the way down, Stagecoach to Russell Rd and then some road racing to a yet to be determined site in South Auburn. We're hoping for right around 100 miles although it may get up to 105 or so with the addition of some paved connections. I won't know the exact mileage until we do some sort of shake down run.

    Big climbing in the last 15 miles is gonna be the decider

    It's gonna be Epic and the premier endurance bike race in California. Stay tuned!

    Question : If the last 15 miles is going to be the decider. Is it going to be hike a bike out of canyons [ Like those wonderful two hikes last year ] or is it going to be rideable. ?? I can handle doing last years HIKING but would not want to push my bike any farther than I did last year. I like riding my bike.

    The last 15mi is the regular auburn trails. There's probably around 3k feet of climbing or so from ruck a chucky camp to the top of stagecoach. All of it totally rideable and really fun.

    Regardless of how we get to Auburn, It is completely rideable from Foresthill to Auburn. Whether people will have the legs to do it is another thing
    The HAB's before Foresthill will be in the full meal deal regardless.

    Great, I will sign up tomorrow. Thought about doing Creampuff or High Cascades but driving from Los Angeles, ST100 is a better option , fun race with 1000 miles less driving.

    sounds like a brilliant finish. I've done the finish section from RuckChuck many times after big training rides and felt pretty devastated. Will be a dig deep situation, under race conditions, after 85 miles of fun A W E S O M E.

    for added fun, have a $100 to the fastest hill climb up drivers flat

    Sean, can we have the river raft companies still run their shuttles on DF during the race... will give it that added je ne c'est qois, getting battered by powdered dust like fried chicken, and getting cheered on by mobile drunken rafting groups
