Hey there, Any suggestions for good tires to run there if we are racing in rain/ mud… I have never ridden there but from the videos the course seems pedally with some roots. So I am guessing spikes would not be the answer? any suggestions of what the locals run there in the wet.

Greatly appreciated

Got a link for a good video of the course?

I think I had the same problem. Check the top left corner of the screen, I believe that is where it actually reports.

hol-ee shit but that's a big hole :eek:

hourly updates on conditions please.

….I'll be the one riding the ferry in armour and full face in the morning. We'll be having a freelap race from the ferry to the shuttle truck ;)

Sustainable will be around forever.

well all those big gaps they built sure are fun(just teasing you martin).

course is pretty nice. little bit slippery here and there but it could get better if it doesn't rain over night. no real jump except one log gap that is pretty doable. definitely tight single track and lots of trees to keep you honest. i find it a lot like SSC, just longer and a little more slope to the hill side. plan on doing your own shuttles if you want to get some laps in. lots of fun to be had

me thinks Prevost is going to be a little busy Sunday…

Just a note for all the folks riding Prevost. Make sure you leave room for the private gate access as the owner is starting to get pretty pissed. There are always cars and trucks blocking the gate or at least blocking an access to it so no one can get in or out. If your truck or car isn't the shuttle rig then it would be a good idea to park a little down the road (like OMG 100') and just the rigs that are getting loaded be there as to free up some congestion in the little area. Prevost is a wicked place so we want to keep it cool with the locals in the area.

I'm the best at being modest !
