    Fancy Creek in Manhattan?? Anyone rode lately?

    I'm doing the Dirty Little Secret race on Many 19th and may not be able to get to Manhattan early to ride.

    If anyone has an opinion/advice/suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Tony Sturgeon rates it as difficult in his book. "Rocky and technical".

    I rode Fancy Creek twice last year; once for maintenance and once for the DLS race. It is pretty technical in a few sections with frequent uphill climbs followed by steep downhills. There are a couple of 1-2 ft drops (one is in this random "channel" of rock in the forest that pretty much everyone dismounts for). The cool thing about Fancy is that you will go from a pine forest, to a prairie, to a wet, green creek area to seeing a cactus all in about 4 miles. I will be volunteering at the race there this year. If I ride it between now and then I'll post back on here.

    I didn't get around to riding out there but the weather is looking pretty good for this weekend! I'll be out there Saturday and Sunday to volunteer for the race. Good luck!

    Forgot to update....


    I wasn't able to ride in the race. Too much going on with graduations and birthday parties so I had to cancel.

    If anyone raced, please let me know how it went!!
