    New question here. RothRock IMBA Epic Ride ......

    Potentiallygoing to ride the IMBA Epic RothRock ride on July 30th, looking for some comment/info on a few things:
    Is the trail easy to follow when using the Purple Lizard Map?
    How long does it take to ride generally?
    Is the trail in good shape this year?
    Is it a loop ride or do you need to stash a car?
    Would you want to join our small group on that day to ride with us?

    Thanks very much.

    Um the Wilderness 101 is July 30th. That course goes over almost all of the R3 course so unless you are willing to share your ride with about 300 racers it may not be the best route. I'ld recommend another route, but the 101 pretty much covers them all. Also you'll be going against the flow of the race in places so that may get scary say as people fly by you at 35 when you are climbing up Detweiler.

    Barring that, the course is easy to follow, All the trails are fine and dandy except long mountain trail. I have not gone up it yet this year but have heard the upper section has lots of trees down on it.

    Pretty much evey MTB'er in town will either be racing the 101 or the Tour de Toona, part of the support crew or out taking photos/cheering/laughing.
