got into town today and got in a lap on the course - sorry, no pics today of the course as i forgot it in my rush to get in a lap before nightfall.
all i got to say is, you better like sandy conditions or you gonna have a bad weekend on this course.
dry conditions has left a lot of sections deep in soft sand - especially in the first mile and a half or so.
after that, it's typical west coast desert riding - you are riding along having a good time in the sand, when all of a sudden rocks and a drop off are 12 inches away from your front wheel. goes from "ho-hum" one second to death defying rock sections the next.
