Wanna try racing? If you are in good condition, I encourage you to give racing a try. There is a difference between a group ride and a race. A race is much, much faster.
This will be an Advanced ride with a blistering, punishing pace.
Distance: 15 miles - For Category 3. 20 miles for Category 2 racers. If you are Category 1, well you will be there anyway.
Riding time: 1+ hours
Difficulty trail rating: 2 - Judging from the last race, the trails are not difficult. There are some turns that you need to do fast. There may be fairly small drops or jumps.
Stamina rating: 3+ - 15 miles on a mountain bike is a lot.
Pace rating: 5- This is racing, baby.
Tires roll at 9:00 for Cat 3. They will leave without you
Directions: See the CCCX website for directions. http://www.cccxcycling.com/FordOrdDirections.html
I suggest getting there an hour before your race time. I did not last time, so I couldn't preview the course.
You will need a racing license to race (you can buy a 1 day license there). They charge a $40 entry fee.
