Team Bike Doctor has put the ‘fast’ stamp on this course. The course is a mixture of gravel, singletrack and grass, including the start/finish. It has a great mix of climbing, sweeping off camber sections and a series of downhill S-Turns. New for 2015, we have added a wooded section where entry position will be a key factor to your success.
