    Echo Valley 60-miler near Chelan, WA

    Since this is a new event for 2011 I can't find any reports on the course and/or terrain. Does anyone here have much to say about the Echo Valley area near Chelan WA, specifically what can be expected for a course? Smooth/fast/easy or rugged/slow/fun? For reference I have ridden Buck Mtn near Winthrop and would call it smooth/fast/easy.

    Thanks,
    CD

    I just saw that the race packet and map w/ elevation profile were posted this morning. I still can't figure out where on the course the two aid stations are located. From what I have heard it is not a rugged or technical course. I am running medium volume fast tires hoping that there aren't too many rocky sections.

    Yes, I heard that the course is likely going to be smooth/fast so am digging through my pile of old Pythons to find a pair with some life left in them. I run Nevegal's on all my bikes now but my home turf is rocky/steep.

    Yes-- I come from a land of mud rocks and roots (i.e. Nevegal territory) so at Chelan I am running Small Block 8's-- not sure if I want to commit to an SB8 on my front though.
