    Marathon Nationals This Weekend

    Anyone heading to USAC Marathon Nationals this weekend in Arkdelphia? It will be my first time at the Iron Mountain Trails...any good insights on the course, sounds like some flowy goodness with limited climbing.

    Some relevant info in an old thread of mine here:

    Whining is not a strategy.

    One of my favorite trails anywhere. Nothing very technical, a few small rock gardens, fast swoopy downhills and just plain a lot of fun. Went last year (not for the Marathon race), couldn't stop riding it was so much fun.

    I ride there fairly often and it's one of my favorite trails. Nothing really to worry about, but be sure to use tires with sidewall protection. It's rocky in some places, and rains have made some sections rockier than they have been in previous years.
