    I signed up for this. I moved to Boulder in 2011, but was unable to ride last year due to injury. I absolulety love the technical parts of Devil's backbone, but i haven't ventured into Horsetooth yet. It sounds very steep and challenging, i'm going to start training after the Growler.

    The Overland MTB club has course description and map. We have a new course for 2013 and it flows extremely well. I rode the course a few days ago and it's riding great. Here's more info 2013 "40 in the Fort" - Annual Endurance Mountain Bike Race | Overland Mountain Bike Club. Let me know if you have questions.

    Ok, i'm planning on riding 1 lap, 1.5 laps, 2 laps during the first three weekends in june to prepare. I rode the Whiskey 25 proof and I am doing the Half Growler this weekend, although if the course really has 9k of climbing, then it's steeper than both of those races. I tend to do better relative to my peers the steeper/rockier the course, so i'm excited, but it still sounds tough.
