Camp - 50 yards from the Pacific Ocean
The course lived up to the hype.
Stage 1 was rooty, rocky, steep and then it got real steep. IT WAS AWESOME!
Stage 2 was little bit of everything. Some fast tight treed single track, a wide open bike park style section and finishing with some more pumpy single track with little jumps thrown in. IT WAS JUST NEAT.
Stage 3 was real. Dropping off the DH course start platform into totally blown up steeps and corners, then railing what felt like a pro level DH course - that's because it was. IT WAS AWESOME. AGAIN.
The transfer stages were real. Not totally over the top, but solid and stiff climbs with some good exposure to the orange orb. 2500-3000' of it.
Had a great time. Glad I went. Raced like a self employed adult with something to lose - slow.
Thanks CDC. The stages, support, timing and results were all quite dialed and on time. One of the most well run events I've participated in. And from what I hear this is the most well run Enduro series in the West . Solid.
Its about to get real
Don't go shopping after a race while bonking

Uber Bike brake pads. Totally failed on stage 1 pre-ride. UK brake pads FAIL.
