    Breck 100 course ridable?

    Anybody out there know if it's possible to ride any of the Breck 100 course. I'd like to pre-ride some of it this weekend if it's rideable.

    Greetings everyone!

    We are looking forward to hosting you in Breckenridge on July 17th for the 6th annual Breckenridge 100 MTB Challenge Races. The course has dried out quickly, and is almost 100% rideable.

    Haven't been up there yet this year but looking at it from town you will have to walk 2-300 yards of snow broken into a few fields. The bigger issue is how much water/mud is on the trail and how much damage you'll do by riding. That guestion I can't answer right now, but I suspect it's still pretty wet. It's going fast though.

    Wheeler Conditions

    Rode it Monday. Very dry except for a few very small snow sections, 10 feet ofrso. The upper section near the pass had a big snowfield, but you can make your way around it and hook up with the main trail again. Other than that no mud to speak of.

    I rode it today in some rain, hail, sleet, and a final blizzard. The snow on the ground wasn't bad, though...

    Pay attention in the trees about a mile out of Como on the way down Boreas, there are some narrow trees that can get your handlebars hung up. Don't ask me how I know...

    I rode loop 3 today. It was all rideable, but the steep sections on Indiana Creek were silly slippery because of the clay mud and slick roots from the rain last night. It should be all dried out by saturday.

    Loop 1 is marked but there may be a minor re-route. The trail from the bottom of the Wheeler goes over a gas line easement. There is an emergency gas leak and they may have that trail closed and dug up. The race might have to go though one of Coppers parking lots, then on the Hwy (very wide shoulder) for about 1/4 mile before it turns back onto the bike path entry. Very minor in terms of distance and effort.

    Won't know until Friday afternoon is we can go with the original course or not.
