Tree down on the west end of the trail by the BP/Baiden/R[HTML_REMOVED]R intersection. Will need a chainsaw - added a note to Trailforks.

For the racers, I guess we add a cyclocross aspect to the ride. :)

Now that I've had a coffee and re-read my note, I apologize for posting before my caffeine injection.

Salamander, just before the uphill section that is rock-armored.

There is no longer an obstacle there you need to worry about.

Can I race on an ebike?

Nope, that's the only official position that the NSMBA has on e-bikes. No e-bikes in timed events.

I don't think anyone puked on the stage 3 :(

I'll have to try harder to find a more punishing stage :)

You going to be out this week? Should I tip off the photogs to be watching for you on some no descript proto rig? We can't have the EWS upping the FWS.
