    Why can't someone ride the trail during the race??

    I say just go for it. The trail is open to the public unless they put a fence around it and post closed signs every 10 feet I don't see how they can close it. The Trail is not exactly heavily traveled, so I doubt the 20 people in 24 hour that would ride it in a normal weekend will make much difference in traffic. Ride it.

    Because it's bad form. Sure you could ride it and mostly likely things will be fine. Still really douchy though.

    Someone riding counter race direction could injure a racer or be injured by a racer, there are some high speed areas on the course. 24 hours of closed out of 9121 open isn't a lot.

    The promoter has the proper permits and the trail is closed to all but race traffic.

    You must be the guy who didn't yield to me climbing up the steep section towards the top of Dry Creek the other day. Granted there was like 4" to the outside I could have scooted over to as my front tire was hopping around that steep switchback or I just could have manned up and rode in the bushes where the trail dropped away to practice my technical BST climbing since all the rocks have been removed. But sometimes you just have to nut up and not be a d!ck, pun intended.
    Geez, it's a race and I wouldn't be surprised if the group organizing the event has a permit, unlike the *****show of an organzing group that put on the Humdinger .

    No need to show your American spirit and get all Tea Party on a mountainbike race .
