Race course description by Scott Carlile of Bendcyclingevents.com:
The course is a good mix of pavement, hard packed bumpy dirt and deep grass. Two significant run ups and a potentially slick off-camber decent will also challenge the riders. Racers will start on a long, wide pavement section for the first 200 yards.
From there, a left turn over the curb will have riders come back and parallel the pavement as the first kidney busting hard pack starts.
