    100km race, Priest Lake, Idaho.... any info?

    I just stumbled upon this link https://www.databarevents.com/selkirk.asp today and would love to know more about the race. Specifically, what's the course like? The description doesn't exactly shout about rippin' singletrack but looking at finishing times from the 2012 race results tells me there has to be a fair amount of singletrack. If anyone can impart some local knowledge I'd be eternally grateful.

    Damn, what a find this is. I'll see if I can round up a few other BC'ers to make the trip.

    For those of you who find pleasure in extended pain here's a link to a similar race north of the border, the Kaslo Sufferfest. Kaslo Suffer Fest | Trail Running, Mountain Biking, Racing Event in the Kootenays

    It sounds like they are doing the climbs on old forest service roads
    .....hope the downhill is on singletrack

    I got a reply on Strava from a guy who did the race last year and he said there was no singletrack, just lots of rough fireroad up and down. Up, yeah! Down, nay! I doubt I'm the only one thinking so but if the organizers were to change that they'd have something worth getting excited about.
