Course Test

Posted in Uncategorized on July 1, 2009 by Chainsaw

Rumor has the course being tough. Thats true. There is a walking section and tons of riding sections. The course is still top secret and we must ask you to let go and trust that we are doing the right thing. Tips for you would be, get real good, think about running suspension, get some gears and have fun getting ready for the World Champs.
