      Superb riding-mostly dirt with a dusting of snow, some sections of packed snow that were firm and fast on skinnies.

      September long weekend XC race action has loosened some gravel in the corners, be careful going down at speeds.

      Rocks and roots are slippery because of the rain. Some puddles but a good ride and good grip still.
