    Thunderdown in the Underdown: What to expect?

    I'm entering the WEMS Championship as a 10 hour soloist with a few buddies of mine, and I'd like to know a bit more about the race/course (I'm from Ohio). Can't find much on the Thunderdown site and searches have turned up very little... anyone have any insight/tips/thoughts? Muchas gracias!

    Its technical and probably one of the hardest courses in Wisconsin. I haved raced there twice as a singlespeed compitor and I don't think I'll do that again. Its out there in the back woods so I would suggest a camelbak. Lots of ups and downs. I've only raced there in the mid summer heat so October would be a much better time to race. Use bigger volume tires with good tread. One of the best places to ride/race in my opinion.
