    Michelob Ultra Fall Classic @ Snow Summit - tough course?

    Anyone know anything about this course? I've done two races, 10 and 14 miles each, but am not sure about the course for this race. I would be racing in the "Beginner" class, and they are supposed to go for 18 miles. I've been training regularly (doing short/intense rides 1-2 nights per week and then longer 10+ mile rides on weekends). Combine this with the fact that I live at sea level in San Diego and I'm not sure I would handle the elevation at Snow Summit for this race. Any advice or experience racing in Big Bear/Snow Summit?

    But for me most of the fun was takin out of it because of the altitude. team big bear uses around 4 different courses over the course of the spring/summer/fall race season. You might check wtih them.
