Next weekend starts my MTB endurance racing for the season at a new venue at Indian Creek that runs through Roxborough State Park in the Pike Nation forest. After a recon ride today I am looking forward to this race! It is all in the forest occasionally popping out onto mountain meadows. It is a three lap course that only covers 54 miles but almost 12,000 ft in total elevation gain. The elevation gain is something else, that is really big for a 54 mile race.
