Sport Class Race Stages:
5. Two Dollar Trail.
1. Upper Chuckanut Ridge Trail
4. Double Black Diamond to Double Down Trail

Transition stage 1:
From Larrabee campground, follow the signs and go directly across Chuckanut Drive and up to the Interurban Trail. Go RIGHT on the Interurban trail and then go LEFT (up) towards Fragrance Lake Road next to the sewage ponds. NOTE: You can either take the trail next to the sewer plant or go through the Clayton Beach/Lost Lake parking lot and go LEFT through the gate.
Stay straight on Fragrance Lake Road and keep going PAST (left) one split in the road and continue up to Fragrance Lake. Go left through the split rail fencing and take an immediate right towards Fragrance Lake. Before reaching the lake, go left and across the wooden boardwalk. Follow that trail above the lake and take the next left up a short climb. The start will be at the intersection where this climb flattens out.

Race Stage 5 – Two Dollar Trail
The stage will start at the intersection to the Fragrance Lake on the more established section of the Two Dollar Trail. Racers will finish after the last RIGHT hand switchback just before reaching the Cleator Road.
Transition 2:
From the bottom of Two Dollar Trail, go RIGHT (up) Cleator Road and ride all the way back to the Cyrus Gates parking lot. From there, riders will push up the steep trail directly above from the viewpoint.

Race Stage 1 - Upper Chuckanut Ridge to Galen’s Step
From the top of the mountain, go down (riders LEFT) the Upper Chuckanut Ridge and take the LEFT turn down towards Cleator Road. If you get into a big section of hike-a-bike, you’ve missed the LEFT turn. This stage will end ~100 feet before the road.

Transition 3:
After completing stage 3, go LEFT on Cleator Road back to the Cyrus Gates Overlook parking lot. Go back up the quick push up to the top of Double Black.

Race Stage 4 – Double Black Diamond to Double Down
From the top of the mountain, go down (riders RIGHT) the Top of Double Black Diamond. Just before the exit, go LEFT at the Y on a newly routed section that crosses Lost lake Trail. Follow this section down to Fragrance Lake Road. Continue down Fragrance Lake Road for 200 feet and take a RIGHT into Double Down. Double Down contains several rock rolls with optional lines that will give riders easier/harder lines through those sections. This section will end just above Fragrance Lake Road.

Transition 4:
After completing Double Down, riders will take a RIGHT immediately after exiting to Fragrance Lake Road. This will connect to the Interurban trail where riders will go RIGHT for 200 yards and then go LEFT downhill and cross Chuckanut drive and back to the Larrabee Campground. Please pay attention when crossing the road here!
