    Check the post above. It is a mix but I'm not sure how many trails they have built in the last year. I do know Mike Ripley runs a great race.

    Mix of both ST and FR... there's a ton of segments in that area. Explore around Alsea Falls recreation site, a few miles due west of Monroe. Or type in Alsea in the segment search.

    Raced it a couple years ago. Course is a hellacious fire road climb into a single track descent that comes out onto a road section back to the fire road. Kinda an up and down course. The single track is fun though. I think Mike has a video up of it somewhere.

    There are some water bar things that suck but otherwise a great race. Easy to get by others also or get passed. Worth the drive. I plan on racing it unless the weather sucks....

    Hope every one made it out to the race today. It was better course than years past. The course was up bail out versus the normal down. Coyote Canyon was a great relief after the climb. The new section on Stellar Jay is looking great.
