    Hopefully whatever needs to be done to make it right.

    I'm no trail builder, but those ruts I saw in the link are sufficient enuff to make riding those trails decidedly un-fun.

    IMO rains aren't enuff to wash away hours and hours of multiple people racing over the same areas. That is some serious damage.

    We had a similar experience happen with one of those Spartan obstacle races a few weeks ago that was held in the rain. Over 8,000 runners destroyed a good portion of our mountain bike trails.
