FSC Race course
« on: October 12, 2010, 12:15:44 PM »
I know that the whole race course wont be divulged, but Im curious to know if Moonscape and Rabbit Ears will be part of the white wave, W3 class. However, if anyone knows the course and wants to give it up, I promise I wont tell anyone :)

I don't know the 2010 course.  But those 1/2 of moonscape minus the real gnarly stuff was on it last year.  So was the newer (3rd) rabbit ear.  So go ride them often prior to the race.

The course was marked this past weekend with many out of town racers practicing!

Any maps of the race course available now that the race is over?  I'd love to give it a go and see how I stack up.

There were 3 by-passes that were used for the race that were blocked yesterday. Sorry.There are 5 races left in the series, why not just come out and try one. The races are a BLAST.

No way I will go that far south for the Coconut Cup races, wedding on the day of the San Felasco...so that leaves Santos.

As Art said, you can't ride the course as it was on a normal day.  Not 100 of it.  But if you ride the same trails, you can at least compare your average (non stop) with the race times.  Start at end of parking lot and go to NC, north river loop to multi use road, to bridges, shelly's loop, to rockgarden (do the ditch drop), first hard option with angled log.  Skip the 2nd hard option and do all of roller coaster.  When you come to the road that leads to the primitive campground go to the levi and do it south to the 2nd half of bridges.  Do all of the north side of bridges to sandpine.  Sandpine to 3rd (newest) rabbit ears.  All of rollercoaster minus the 3rd hard option.  Go to start of moonscape.  On normal day, you must ride killanubie.  We skipped that by going into the exit (do not do this on normal day).  Join the moonscape trail.  Do most of moonscape minus doom and the harder option on the back side. 
 
Again, not the same course but you can at least compare your average speed.

Rode most of those on Saturday, but don't recognize killanubie and we definitely got a little turned around in Moonscape.  And what do you mean normal day?

Normal day = not a race day = you must turn right into moonscape when you finish rollercoaster.  (into KillANubie) instead of going straight on the Exit Only sign bailout of Moonscape.
 
KillAnubie is the first rooty climb on Moonscape with a monster root in between two trees for a tight squeeze, than you turn left into the drop.

Ahhh, I know where that is...That Killanubie is probably the most exhilerating part of the park, I loved it!
