XC and Endurance Courses
A rolling, twisty relatively smooth course awaits. If you’ve been here for the IIGOMTB or IIGOX Relays you’ll find a similar, but expanded loop of trails on the beautiful Oesterling Farm. If you’ve been around long enough to remember to XC’s and relays from a few year’s back you’re in for more of that same fun!
Those extra miles in the XC and Endurance events bring the challenge too as they rack up the elevation, but we’ve also got a plan to take out some of the kickin’ in teeth we’ve done to you in the last mile of previous courses. I mean, we’ll still kick you in the teeth, but not quite as many times…
You won’t see much in the way of rocks out there, but we do love us our logs! Hope you do too!
You’ll definitely find some go-rounds out there too. Here’s the deal though — I don’t come to your trails and drop logs on them for me; do not move my logs or create go rounds on your own. Do not modify the go-rounds or logs.
We’re targeting a 6.5mile lap distance. You can figure on something in the realm of 600 feet of gain per lap, but no climbs over about 100-150 feet of gain at any one time with three pretty steep, but short, ones.
IIGO Relay Course
The IIGOX course is a real crowd pleaser with a pretty chill elevation gain and then a long, fun, twisting and never very steep descent for over 1 mile. This course is just a damn hoot! And we totally have a slip-n-slide in the middle of it.
The Night TT is gonna look something like this:
We’re offering kids courses all three days for 12 and under riders. Figure that we’ll have two distances – one for bigger kids and one for smaller ones. Please register for the kids’ races at least 30 minutes before the start.
Longer versions for Friday and Sunday will be the same as one lap of the adult courses. The Saturday Kid’s ride looks like this:
Downhill Dual Slalom Tricycle Course
Just bring a helmet.
