    It would be helpful to know more about the XC course, ie. what is the course length? is it technical? will a course map be posted? etc....

    I have looked everywhere - I think - and can only find the Blue mtn map, and when I zoom in I cant read the trail names.


    for the XC course is there a better map?

    thx

    Looks like we'll be there for the bulk of the Dual Slalom! Haven't been to one of those since Mammoth in the mid-90s! Awesome!
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    hopefully the rain will hold off... a little tip when it is wet up there, just air down your tires a little below your normal preasure...

    T his race had so much potential but it ended up being so confusing, marshalls not giving correct directions did not help

    Thx for the feedback, the logistics of trying to do something different and run a 15 km loop was tough. We will certainly use a shorter fully closed loop for 2012, thx for coming out and we will see you next yr!

    Andrew Watson (Norco Factory) won pro men xc
    Mikaela Kofman (3Rox) won pro women xc

    Making the trip up from Highlands to Blue for the DS was totally worthwhile. Super-exciting racing and good to see so many friendly faces!

    What a weekend!
