2007 Boggs Mountain Metal Madness

2007boggs.jpgThe good folks down the road at UCD sent me an email reminding me that the NorCal XC season isn't over with the Lake Sonoma Series finals this weekend . . . The UC Davis Cycling's Boggs Mountain Metal Madness will be held on November 17-18, 2007. The event will consist of three races:

AC-DC-XC (Saturday at 10 AM, registration begins at 8:00am and closes at 9:45am): A cross country course fun for experts and beginners alike. The 95% single track, thirteen mile loop gains 2000 ft in elevation over multiple climbs interspersed with ripping rollercoaster sections. The trail surface is pine needles over hard pack with some pretty rocky sections. The course will be the same as last year. Course distance is determined by class: Men's A / Women's A / Expert go 2 laps, everyone else does 1 lap.

SUPER DIO (Sunday at 9:30am, registration begins at 8:00am and closes at 9:15am): Le mans start Super D. Downhill single track, double track and fire road sections. Windy and rocky but not too technical. A course appropriate for hort-travel suspension or hardtails. Point-to-point, the few mile group ride to the top of the course leaves shortly after registration closes. A shuttle to he top will not be available. Self arranged shuttles out from the finish may be possible depending on road conditions.

SHORT TRACK TO HELL (Sunday at noon, register at the same time as Super D): A classic short track course with a little of everything. This half mile course laps around the campground making for easy spectating. A long fire road section for passing precedes a short technical climb followed by a loose descent. Single track completes the loop for a well-rounded course of varying terrain. Race is determined by time: Men's A / Men's Expert: 30 min + 2 laps, Men's B / Men's Sport: 20 min + 2 laps, Women's A / Women's Expert: 20 min + 2 laps, Men's C / Men's Beginner: 15 min + 2 laps, and Women's B / Women's Sport: 15 min + 2 laps.

The race is being held at Bogg Mountain Demonstration Forest, just north of the Bay Area. Here's a map that should get you there:
