Windham US National XC Course Recon Ride

Windham US National Mountain Bike Race is this weekend, June 28-30, 2013. In addition to the ProXCT races, Windham will also host amateur racing as part of the New York State Mountain Bike Series and the Root 66 Race Series.

Today I took a drive down to Windham for a recon ride. I pretty much expected the same course a previous years, and that is just what I found. Starting with a moderate climb leading to some doubletrack, leading to more climbing to some singletrack. That led to more climbing to a short descent to more climbing. And more climbing. And more climbing. Get the picture? Approximately 2.1 miles going up the mountain with a great reward of a fun, approximately 1.4 mile, ride down the mountain on some great, technical, fun singletrack.

I rode two slow laps to just re-familiarize myself the the course. The course was mostly dry, although I’m pretty sure that will change overnight and Friday. Even wet, I know that I’ll enjoy the course and the race.
