Anyone have a .gpx for the course?  Can't seem to find one and apparently you have to be apart of the facebook to view posts for the event 2tg set up.

The location of the Start/Stop may change a bit at CBL, otherwise this is pretty much the course unless 2GuysTiming makes a change. 

Original CBL start - Swim Beach - (May Change to Campground - penidng USFS permit and Beach Concessionaire)

 

CBL Clockwise to OT connector - Turn left on OT South Trace to Hwy A(Pave) - Right On Hwy A - 3 miles to Hwy 49(Pave) - Right on Hwy 49 - ~1.75miles to County Road 818(Gravel) Left on CR 818 - ~1.5 miles to CR 835(Gravel) - Right on CR 835 ~6miles to OT Middle Fork - Right on Middle Fork to OT South Trace - Left on South Trace to CBL Connector - Right on CBL connector to Race finish. CBL routing is Clockwise...That means the lake is always on your RIGHT.

 

GETCHASUM!!!

Rode most of the Squealer yesterday.  Didn't get to finish Council Bluff as we ran out of daylight, but ended up with 57.1 miles and 5,536 feet of elevation according to the Strava app.  I'll see what the Garmin says once I get it uploaded.

 

There is a LOT of work needed on South Trace as there are trees down absolutely everywhere.  A few are down on the Telleck Branch connector, some on Middlefork and from the little we hit on Council Bluff, there will be some tree removal and grooming needed.  A lot of time was lost from the dismounting, but it was still fun.  I'd recommend getting a lot of climbing miles in before the race.  Getting some time in on the road bike will also be very helpful for the road and long gravel portion.

Finally got around to uploading the Garmin...

6,399 ft elevation gain

6,351 ft elevation loss

735 min elevation

1,302 max elevation
