    I really like the style of your writing. I’m an aspired mtb writer.. Looking forward to some more of your articles!

  • Comment from George Williams

    Even if you can’t publish an exact map, can you provide a rough idea of max elevation and elevation gain?

  • Comment from DaveMo

    Yes, I agree with George: some estimate of the elevation gain would be really helpful for my training. Thanks!

    Tried to email you 3 times with no success. Course map is viewing fine for me so I have no answer for that. Elevation is about 3800′ of climbing.

    It was a great first ultra for me! I wanted to acknowledge all of your volunteers at the aid stations — they were so helpful and happy — it was a joy to come up to each and every station knowing I would be taken care of. You also had a prefect spread of drinks and snacks. I also wanted to acknowledge the work you all put into making the race fun. Looking forward to it next year! THANKS!!!
