This all came from WORS web site. I can’t remember the mans name who wrote it though.

There is tons of things before and after the race. Pluse you can walk over to the Zoo is you whant. I have no idea where 2000+ people are going to park. The parking lot is part of the race corse. So anybody going should plan for some problems. And unlike most WORS races the elite and Comp go before Citizen and Sport. Every one will be there all at once.
The corse has been extended from 8 miles to 11.8 miles, that’s 1 lap. It is a brutal corse, brand new trails. It would be nice if you had a fully.
All riders over 16 will have to buy a trail pass, $5, just like 9mile

Im not smart enough to get the map pic to work
nom nom nom
sorry not going to be able to make it
Ill try to get down there sometime soon though
you didnt miss much. It was hot, dry, sandy, %80 double track and %60 of that was horse trail. And did I say sandy?
personaly i did my best. I and another guy(who took second in frount of me last race) where next to each other the whole 1st lap and half the second. Then I cramped and was done. Rider after rider started passing me. We had 1st and 2nd with about 20min left but I just could go anywhere with cramps like that. I had expected I would. I need to work on my long hard riding.
A kid about 5min behind me crashed into a tree and broke his colar bone. The worst part was that other riders just passed him while he was laying on the ground. My dad helped him to a water station. My dad was so mad that nobody helped the poor kid out, so there probly be some talk about helping more people out when the crash and burn like that.
