Exactly. What I have experienced (when riding in similar areas to where the course will be) is that when it rains hard, and the course runs along the base of nearby hills, the runoff coming down hill can cut square edges into the track. With enough rain, the cuts can be really deep. Don't know if this will be a factor, just trying to think ahead of what we might encounter.

It's 4:30 day of. Just woke up and it's time to get ready. I'm going to try to eat some breakfast, drink some coffee and do some stretching. Man the nerves are racing. I need to calm the f@&k down. It's just a trail ride with a bunch of strangers.
I'll post some more after the finish but I'm sure Fano will send updates throughout the day. Between mixing drinks;)

I just know you'll have the most fun ever during this race!! NOT to sound like a Mom but Fano, remember to keep our boy hydrated and fed. We don't need another crazy "Joker" incident! I'm VERY SAD to not be riding along but will have my eyes on all day so please keep us sideliners posted.

Through rawhid. News from the remote pit is he is tired. Maybe it was the 400 plus miles he just rode.

According to his spot he is climbing the fun rocky shit then down to the finish. Fano is fishing ice cold beer from the cooler for Schylars finish celebration in about 45 min.
