Courses will vary from month to month but are described as "Courses will consist of Single-track, Fire Roads, Natural Obstacles, Technical Sections, Some routes may have Pedal Sections, The trails in this park have Steep Sections and lots of Elevation, Most trails will favor a Medium Range Bike and not a Ski Resort DH Rig.

There will be medals for top finishers in each group, money for top 3 fastest times each race and plaques for series winners (5 deep).

This is super sweet. For those of you who didn't make it down for the CCCX XC series, they put on a great race. And this course sounds like I might be able to race it on my trailbike . . .
