2012 Ancient Peaks Race 1

The second ever race at the Ancient Peaks venue has come and gone. Riders last year had a hard time through the Rack garden that was built so they adjusted that some on the Pro and Expert line. The downhill course otherwise was pretty similar. They also added a Dual Slalom course for this event and they had a number of entrants for it.

The downhill is loaded with a high-speed fireroad start that shoots riders left into the trees. Once into the trees riders hit berms and drops ranging from 3-4 feet. SOme of the corners are bermed while others are off camber. There was very little rain so the upper section was very loose and made it hard on some riders to carry speed through the off camber turns for sure.

Once you get through the turns you enter the high-speed berm section where riders can bury their suspension and be launched out towards the triple that gives riders the option of doubling if they cannot make the 35 or so foot gap.

After that riders are shot back into the woods and off a ladder drop and speed once again picks up with wide open corners then the tight s-turns come up to slow riders down. The trail gets progressivly steeper and has two sharp turns at two points here. Once through this you cross an open section and a wood bridge over a small stream.

The next section has two route the Pro/Expert line is through the Rock garden while Beginner/Sport go around. After exiting the rocks you have a G-Out into and uphill that fades right many riders had problems here. After this is speeds up winding riders through the trees and across the finishline.

Dual Slalom riders had a course that was filled with deep berms and flowy jumps. Turnout was lower than expected for this and some people entered with downhill bikes just to ride it. They spent a number of months building it and hope to have better turnout next time around for the Dual race.

Overall the course was pretty smooth there were a few sections with a little chop in them. Some riders that had two bikes to choose from went for the ones with suspension over the hardtails. MikeyHaderer ended up beating out Kyle Hogan in the final for the Slalom race.

Due to a lack of rain the race scheduled for July has been push back until winter. At this point no definate date has been locked down but we will post it as soon as we hear something! The riders that came out thanks for your support and we hope you had a good time riding the trails Nate and his crew have spent so many hours working on.
