Well the course is looking tip top if I do say so. A few minor things before race day and it should be Prime. Anyways I thought i would quick update you all on the course for the different races.
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.
