    Lees McRae Collegiate Nationals.

    I was just wondering if anyone can give me a description of the Downhill race course that is at sugar mountain. Pics would be even better! thanks

    I tried to do a search on here and look on sugar's website but couldn't find anything. I assume it's going to be the same course as nationals...rocky, rooty and steep. There was one big rock slab that they ran the elites/pros on at the NMBS and routed everyone else around. I don't know if they will include that or not. It's gonna be cold, probably foggy and maybe snowing.

    I'll be up there, not to race, but to party. I think UNC only has one guy actually racing, and he's only in XC and short track.

    I'm pretty sure that it is the very same course as the NMBS race, so yeah, there should be plenty of data about it.

    nrs air, I hear that you guys might have at least one chick racing...
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in his shoes...
    That way, when you criticize him you're a mile away and you have his shoes.

    Yeah...I think only one of our girls has done more than one A race, but we've got a couple who are fast enough to go. It will be a good time regardless though.

    Look on Ridemonkey in the DH forum, some pics and info are up.

    Expect rocks, roots, mud, and injuries.
