6pm race: 1 lap 7pm race: 2 laps

From our race HQ in the Concorde Church parking lot we start into the trail on the final stretch of A in the back parking lot. This is our final week and we are prepping for this weekend’s kickoff to the DORBA Fall Series. The course will use an abbreviated A loop hitting only the final red extension on A. That means Skull Hill and the Stairway bypass. Then we head over for the full B loop and finish up the night with D loop and Porter Hill (hopefully paved!). 

Erwin Park

6pm race: 2 laps 7pm race: 4 laps

We are headquartered back at the top parking lot at the front of the park this week as we head to the southeast section for a bit of fun. This is a fast, pass happy course with lots of turning. Our start line will be next to the cops house where we will race through the gully and then hanging a right next to the upper parking lot. From there we will dive into the peek-a-boo on the dam and then down the high speed no-brakes section before hitting the open field. Following the singletrack racers will go through the V-tree, up the punchy dam climb and finally through the airfield and back to the start. This course does have a lot of open field singletrack, sunscreen and extra water is recommended.

6pm race: 2 lap 7pm race: 3 laps

From our race HQ in the Concorde Church parking lot we start into the trail on the final stretch of A in the back parking lot. Racing past the main trail entrance there will be a hard left hand turn as we cut out the “guts” of loop A and head for the north side. Hitting the first 2 red bypasses on A and then skipping Skull Hill the course will then go to loop B. After finishing loop B, reconnect with A and head for the exit on what is typically the exit of E loop and back into the Concorde Church Parking Lot.

6pm race: 2 laps 7pm race: 4 laps

This week we head back to the expert section of the trail and get to include both the Scream ‘n Drop and the wooden berm. Sweet! This is most likely the tightest course we use with the fewest opportunities for open field passing, so all the more reason to bring an extra tank of gas and really punch it when you find the opportunity. We will have our race HQ setup at the north gazebo for this race and the start will be at the T-intersection at the bottom of the asphalt hill. You will start headed northwest up the Strava segment named “Shawn You Suck!!” to the cemetery entrance and follow the trail until it exits just south of the expert section at the old trailhead. From there you will turn down the asphalt road and head back to the north Gazebo to the finish line/lap timing.

6pm race: 1 lap 7pm race: 2 laps

Map of course: click here for map.

We will be racing from our headquarters at the Concorde Church parking lot down the south side of A loop to the main trail head, cutting e guts of A loop and hitting the last two red extensions with the skull hill bypass before heading to a partial B loop and then to D loop and conquering PORTER HILL!! This will be our most intense climbing course yet! We will then end up on the usual exit of E to get out of the parking lot where we hit the lap/finish line. Brutal, glorious and fun. If the climbing hurts, shut up legs!

6pm race: 2 laps 7pm race: 4 laps

Map of course: http://www.strava.com/activities/60669359

We start at the top parking lot and rip across the paved road to the top entrance and immediately start with roots, tight trees and smiles. We are starting the series with fun and flow while ripping through the no brakes sections on both ends of the big field climb. Once you hit the road prior to the infield you will be taking the road and hauling up the paved road back to the top, the section you affectionately named “Damn you Shawn” last summer. Awww… I love you guys too. <3

From our race HQ in the Concorde Church parking lot we start into the trail on the final stretch of A in the back parking lot. This week we will be using the FULL A loop and then jumping on E in the proper direction before exiting at the parking lot. As of today we are planning to use the Skull Hill loop but bypassing the actual Skull Hill. This may change prior to race start.
