    NorCal #2 - Folsom Prison photos posted

    I'm sure there will be plenty more photos posted, these are just what I got while on roving safety crew.

    Also, if you have feedback about this particular course, the trails etc I'd like to hear about it. We constantly try to improve the trails system when we can, and where we are allowed to.

    Thank you all, it was a geat event and it was a pleasure working with the NorCal staff!

    Do you race in front of the prison to help keep the kids focused on making good choices?

    Some good shots in there Brian, thank you. Our kids really liked the course and terrain. Most of the climbs were short with recovery descents right afterward, so lap times were fast for a 6 mile loop. They said the toughest climb was from the stairs up to the start/finish area, not because of the rocks but it was longer than some of the other climbs and after the long flat stretch along the river that always had a head wind. The trails at the beginning of the course were tight and flowy and definitely challenged some of the riders, and it opened up from there. Podium inside the rodeo arena was a nice touch as well. Overall a great venue for high school racing that we will look forward to racing next year.

    Prison walls are sobering reminder of the choices we make. Not a bad thing for the kids to see.
