This year's course, while similar to the 2017/2018 routes, is an upgraded version. What did we change? We added more fun, and dodged the more intimidating sections. Not to worry, we still have the classic trails, like Weasel, Rattlesnake, and Rattlesnake Return. And we've done a lot of work on Bear Cub this year, which is now super fun singletrack. We've also added a section of Fisher, and part of Short Otter. The end result is even more flow, plenty of fun sections, and ample opportunity for passing.

Top riders may be able to clear the course in about 20 minutes, but most riders will be closer to 30 minutes per lap. Course length is 5.5km, with 80m climb per lap (feels like more, with multiple small climbs).
