Quick question, are the out of state nationals just as tiring and hard as ours? I was wanting to try to do the whole series this year but not sure if I'm up for it and its an awfully long drive for a DNF.
The out of state rounds are definitely "easier".... but its all relative. The Idaho round is all single track in the trees which a lot of riders find much more challenging then our rocks.
Utah has some long sand dune sections that are really challenging but in a different way.
The Penaca, NV round is definitely technical and from what i hear one of the most fun rounds. Plus the city gets behind it, there's a parade lap through the streets and everything. I'll be there this year for sure.
The Reno, NV one (that I'm hosting) is going to be very challenging. Basically like a 2nd loop for 75 miles. I personally dont like bike breaker stuff so it wont push it to hard, but it will never let up. Thats just the terrain that's offered. On top of that there's a truck race going on at the same time which will make spectating AWESOME (epic ;))
