Wow, those look much nicer than when we rolled through there in July.

So what is the course profile like? We got a team from KC coming up and we have no idea what kind of hardware to bring. Thanks!

45% climbing..nothing long, but everyone of them are power short climbs. 40% downhill....some very fast. the rest may be considered sorta flat. lot's of off camber, some bridges, roots, and a few tight switchbacks. If it gets wet prepare for a train wreck, lots of clay that just gets crisco slick. I love this course cause its mentally demanding, if you get off trail you'll either have a shit load of poison ivy to deal with or thorns in your tires:) Gears are what I take for solo efforts:) In 2006 I ran a 34x23 gear ratio for roughly 9hrs in the solo's I would have been locking up sometime in the night had I kept going.

Peace
