If somebody come to a friendly fiver and is so competitive as to want to run up the course, well wow….

Does anyone have a 22 tooth chain ring I can borrow so I don't get ridiculed for walking up Stage 1?

Pre-rode the course tonight. Everything is running mint but lots of marbles everywhere. Leopard (not part of the course) is in great shape.

Warden is loose but very rideable. I spun up in a couple of gears down to see if I could do it with any speed and it wasn't bad.

I filled in a few shortcuts that some riders have been taking on the crinkum crankum corners. Lots of big logs in the way now.

There's a large tree down on Cedar trail that will need to be chainsawed out. I filled out a trail report on Trailforks but who knows if this trail is assigned to anyone.

Don't miss the King of Shore corner when you're pinning it down Middle Griffin…

Podo is going to take care of the tree on Cedar.

I will tape off the cut lines on Crinkum Crankum. The Middle Griffen to KoS will get lots of tape hopefully people don't blow it.

thanks for that; there was one particularly glaring straight line bushwhack that i saw developing the last time i was down. can't comprehend the mentality of people who do that, but they're out there evidently.

Also did a lap although Floppy Bunny was roped off. First time I've ever ridden Crinkum Crankum. As Ken said it's a marble fest. Pretty sketch trying to ride it quick. My advice is run everything as soft as possible and if you've got a bike set up 650b+ you're laughing.

Is this a recent thing or has it been happening just this week since the fiver course was announced? Pretty lame regardless, but extra lame if it's just for fiver bragging rights.

Yes we're doing hardtail again and yes I can break out the old dudes times.

I think senior citizen is a good name for it. 40+ same as the EWS.

Floppy Bunny was roped off.

Podo said he had some fresh work going on Floppy and it should be running sweet for the Fiver.
