Back at it for our 2nd of 3 Solitude races for the 2015 season this Tuesday, July 21th. We’ll also be hosting the evening as a memorial for Ezra Cook.
Skies showered briefly in the early afternoon, transforming the dry trails into smooth & sticky goodness. The increase in elevation and the steeper climbs were felt by all; everybody seem to have mentioned the mashing required to complete the course’s 800′ vert laps.
Stoked to be heading up Big Cottonwood Canyon, high alpine starts, steep forested switchbacks, technical rock gardens and COOL TEMPS!
What a great last race, we caught the dry window and got some primo dirt.
I wanted to wait until after Tuesday passed, just point out that it was dry yesterday, no threatening precip, no lighting, just a perfect night for a race… classic. Thanks for hanging in there this year through our cancellations & make-up nights.
Last race of the season, Tuesday night August 26 at Solitude Mountain Resort. This is for all the marbles – $6,500 in the purse & awards –
“We Have Results!” It seems so long since this was the case, with last couple of scheduled nights ending in rain-out cancellations.
So what’cha all think about The ‘Tudes Big Lap? Personally I really enjoyed racing on a new course, and to include such a nasty climb, well that was just plain awesomeness thrown in.
It’s a Big’n!
A new Solitude course for this Tuesday, a 1,200 climb, TO THE TOP, before a long technical descent Rock’n the full Kruzer trail. (course map below) If you pre-registered for last week’s race at Snowbird where we were rained out, you will have credit for your next race
