Here's the preview for this weekend's CCCX DH race:
The course for race #4 will be very similar to Race #1 of the 2010 season. The race route starts out with some super high speed fire road sections. The trail then dips into some steep singletrack trails that have switch-backs and off camber portions that will really test tire traction and turning technique. More singletrack trails take the riders to the finish line after 1.3 miles of course with nearly 1000 vertical feet descended. For this race the traction is slick and the trails are extremely dry and hardpacked. Tire choice and air pressure will be keys to success for this race.
