And me!

Yeah, I'm thinking similar total elevation drop to last year, with one of the big climbs replaced with the Creekside Gondola. That'd be perfect, and they're going to want to showcase their new lift, surely?

See you all in the 30-39 masters class…. glad the weather isnt hot as hell this year. That killed me lastyear on the S4 transition.

Looks as clear as mud to me! Even more so on a tablet!

From what I can see stage 1 is Hey Bud, with a climb up as per last year. Stage 2 is lift up to the peak. Stage 2 is TOTW into Kyber pass. Stage 3 I have no idea what it is, I kinda know roughly where it is, or if it's a climb there?

Stage 4 seems to be the new Creekside gondola, up to the top and ride what I assume is the new trail down to BC's?

Then from what I can see its back up the Creekside lift, down the expressway to the Garbo lift and stage 5 is No Joke/Freight Train I to the same stuff as last year?

If I'm right, im amazed!

How much climbing elevation? Doesn't seem like much from what is described.

Looks to me like the only big climb is up to Hey Bud for the first stage…

Very euro this year with the lack of climbing, but I suggested totw/khyber as a killer stage many moons ago so am glad to see that….the climb from the microwave road to see colours is about 20 minutes of loose rocky tech with a couple moderately steep sections, but really nothing to be concerned about. Now I just need to find some dh casing tires…

I might even be able to go full euro on this one - bottle on the bike, summer roadie jersey with pockets to carry bits under a baggy top [HTML_REMOVED] just ride in a full face.

There's enough water taps to refill on the loop.
