    Hop Brook Race Preride

    I'm planning on preriding the Hop Brook race course on Wed. 3/27 if anyone is interested in joining me, or showing me around. It doesn't sound like there's much trail there in Middlebury. Does anyone have opinions on the riding?

    I'll be watching the snow depth chart. Where in Ma are you? I've been riding Cape Cod a lot this winter.

    I live within riding distance from Hop brook, Will be there Sunday too. I rode today in local woods, looks all good to me for Sunday, of course rain is expected during the day Friday, but sun Sat should be good. The normal muddy spots are hardly mud at all, but one 8" deep hole had a layer of ice over it. The trail conditions as of today are near perfect!

    Great news! I didn't get a chance to preride. How's the course/riding? Any high penalty/technical stuff or can you pretty much rip through?

    Pretty much rip thru, not overly technical, but hillclimbs.
