2017 NSMBA Fiver - Presented by Steed Cycles
Race Details:

The final Fiver of 2017. Presented by Steed Cycles.

New addition to the Fiver will be a Social Ride and Kids Ride. If you don't want to race, come on out and join for a ride.

Sing in for the Fiver will open at 10am to 11am at the Parking lot on Fromme.

Social Ride and Kids Ride will sign in at 10:45 in the Parking Lot on Fromme.

I love this course and how the technical difficulty ramps up on each stage! The new work on Lower Oil Can makes it a blast. It would be fun to be a spectator on the final stage's Baden Powell and Lower Crippler sections. I hope the end of Oil Can to Baden Powell and the Lower Crippler to Braemar sections are well marked as there are a lot of different ways you could go wrong in those areas.

Glad it's drying out for Saturday, rode the rouse on Tuesday and some pretty slippery sections on Lower Crippler!
