As far as 3 foot sand whoops, I see you've ridden from the railroad to Razor road.
That 3 or 4 mile stretch is, for lack of a better word, "special".

Next year is the 30th anniversary. I'm gonna sign up the minute I can.
The lowest rider number I have ever had on this ride was #8.
#257 this year, #205 last year....

Thanks for the beta Stu.

Yep, there and many other sections in Lucerne and Spangler, etc. It just been about 20 years. I'll be heading back to CA in a couple months and already have a bike. My knee's and wrists are already aching thinking about the whoops.
