The TSBD crew will travel south to Moab and rally MAG 7. The route is simple although their are a few versions of MAG 7 I've found this one to be the most suitable for our series. Pretty simple. Bullrun, Arths, Little Canyon, Gold Bar to Gold Bar Grunt (huhh i hate this climb, ask Zinn how much I love this grunt up up to the top of the Rim). Continue on Blue Dot and follow the edge of the rim (awesome just awesome riding here) Everything is rideable just man up and don't look left :-)
Continue to Gold Bar Rim. Don't worry you will know when you've merged onto this trail as its tough. Up and down relentless. Get it done, you will be a better rider for it. Eventually you will reach the intersection with Poison Spider and Portal, breath a sigh of relief you made it, mostly....

Take a left towards Portal. Hang on tight for Portal. No introduction needed here for the famous portal trail. Bottom line is, ride what your comfortable with as some section have some serious exposure. Don't be afraid to walk some parts, most do. But non the less this will be our timed section, (start is just after the first switch back and only switch back which puts you on the edge of the cliff not to long after you leave the double track). Portal to the Road, the winner of this will truly solidify themselves as the person with the least amount of self preservation in mind.

Good Luck...
