2007 Fall CCCX DH #2 Preview

cccxdh1.jpgIt time for the CCCX downhill races again:
CCCX Race #2 Course Profile: The DH route for race #2 features 1000 feet of vertical drop in approximately 3 miles of trail. The top section will boast some new off camber sections, and some high speed fire roads. Then the course will dip down into a portion of Toro Park that has been used in the past for CCCX races. This area is 90 % single track to the finish. The terrain is fast and flowing with tight sections combined with wide open turns that make the riding fun and challenging. This trail does have some pedaling portions and some flat sections, as well as high speed sections, so it will favor a rider who is well rounded and fully skilled in downhill racing. Toro Park is dry, and the trails are lose and slick, and very fast, so the average speed should be very high for this course.
The first race had a big turnout so register and arrive early.
