Race Course Description:
The course at Whitetail Ridge is as textbook an old school XC course and offers our rider the classic conundrum of sustained mid length climbs to really fill the legs with lactate and rooted, rocky, and twisty single track to navigate with jelly legs and hypoxic tunnel vision. The challenge here is self management.  Measured effort on the climbs is the key so you can maintain tempo over choppy and swooping single track.  This course favors those that race within themselves.
