I am doing the 65 with my brother and a family friend.  My brother is doing the ride and he has never been on a mountain bike  :o

hear tell the 65 miler is harder than the hundy.  Seriously if your gonna go all the way to Cohutta and pay good american dollars to ride that many miles, then you might as well go all the way???

Seriously.

do the 65 if you love to climb.  You end up doing like this hard ass climb twice, rob could tell you better.  In the hundy you end up climbing a little less and doing more downhill.

It is in the mountains of Tennessee and Georgia, so a little more climbing than us flatlanders are used too. That being said this is supposed to be the easiest of the Nue series races :)
