Sorry forgot t update. Yes, I verified it is the same. Although there are two differences. The quarry road section of the BUMP trail has been redone and is somewhat smoother. The other is Jekyl n Hyde has gotten rougher/more technical. Should be a very good race.
Looking forward to it again this year. The top section of Jekyl n Hyde was challenging in the first lap since it was still pretty congested and then the last lap being tired made it technical as hell. Hoping the weather is as nice as it was last year!
I did 6 laps in 5:35 last year. I accidentally checked off "beginner" class on my entry form and didn't know til the results were posted. That lap/time put me in 1st place in that class and would've been 1st in Sport class(where I'd intended).
