The race is approximately 37 km in length, boasting a lung busting 101 switchback long pristine single-track climb. This is not your typical XC race. The NIMBY Fifty is what we refer to as a technical marathon xc bike race which means it is absolutely loaded with incredible single track.

trail change: New line/swoop to the cliff edge turn. Some braids blocked. Tons of new armouring in the top steep section. I’ll be back for more next week.

Don't do it. Don't smell your glove, it's a trap. My nose is dying.

Beautiful trail during fall. Trail supposed to be ridden in both directions though the "end" is quite hard to climb for the first 100 meters imo.
