Just to clear up the Pre Race ride thing..
The course should be laid out by Friday the 12th, BUT The trails WILL NOT
be closed this year due to the county now charging the $2 fee (they would lose income) and YES, you will have to pay the fee to pre-ride AND again to race (unless you have an annual pass). The race registration Does NOT cover the $2 park fee. The Morris Bridge trails will be Closed to the public on Race Day.
The course is looking like it will be about 9.5 miles with some new stuff not used in the past.. It will be Fast and Fun...
