The course will start in wide open fields and quickly transition into a gravel road. Riders in the front will be rewarded with the hole shot into about 1.5 miles of tight, twisty, rooty single track. The next 1.5 mile section is wide open fields and double track with about a 3% grade that will push even the fittest of riders. You will then dive back into single track for a mile of undulating tight and twisty single track before you reach the grassy sprint finish.
