The Beginner race will be about an entire lap minus White Knuckle Willy, Cassie's Climb, and Headlight alley. This means only one creek crossing but both big hills. Expect finish times to be about 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes for the average beginer racer. Distance is about 7-8 miles.
The sport race will be the entire lap plus 1 parade lap. The parade lap consists of the field edge, million dollar ride, and rippin edge. This is to space everyone out. Distance is about 12-13 miles. Expect finish times to be about 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes for the average sport racer.
The expert race will be two entire laps plus 1 parade. Distance is 22-23 miles. Expect expert finishers to be anywhere from 2 hours 10 minutes to 2 hourse 40 minutes.
Those are my best guesses since i cant find last years results. I dont have a cyclometer on my bike either so these are the distances I've heard from others.

One major update is the band. We secured River and the Tributaries for live Music on Saturday night. They are a super cool folk rock band from originally from Dubuque but now residing in Iowa City. I think these guys could go all they way with their music don't miss your chance to hear them live before they hit main stream.
Some other updates include the finishing of the indy drop reroute. Beginners will still most likely go down the old indy drop but sport and expert racers will get to experience the new route. It's super fun!!! Check out kyle riping it so fast he's a bit of a blur.
Also recently completed was some new bridge features for the DH course. Sorry for the bad quality but it's a bit dark in the woods and I'm not the best cammera operator.
Finally I would like to let everyone know that the UWP cycling club will be out on Saturday and Sunday selling some food. Not sure what they all have planned but there should be some stuff avaiable for those not racing and reciving a complementary burrito.

Thanks to everyone who has helped out with trail work this year. After the horrible spring we have had the trails are in great shape. More needs to be done but they are looking good. For everyone who has helped so far thanks again. I also wanted to point out a trail workers best friend the brush hog. This guy has worked tirelessly to help maintain the trails. The nice thing is when he's out of gas you can just add more. "Why cant we get every mall-walker or wal-mart walker one of these, could you imagine all the mowing that could get done!!
I wanted to leave you with a great picture I got of the field at the end of Timber Dr. What a view!!

Well the trails are starting to come back to life after all of the rain and strong plant growth the summer has brought so far. This last Saturday Marge got together a big group ride out at the trails. There were so many people she needed to get a bus!!!
The climbs are as grueling as ever the heavy rains move all the rocks around making the good line the hard one to find. Bellow is a shot of Timmy's Screamer. Can you scream when your gasping for air??
Please join us for the next group ride at the Farm on Tuesday!! Cya
