    This place is also presumably going to have the same type of "never too wet" dirt as RPR. Too wet to ride in town? Grab the DH gear and head to Burnet.

    I wasnt taking a stab at XC racers/riders but ive seen the race courses. I dont need to participate in an XC race to understand what it would be like to ride the track.


    if I had to create a comparison I would say enduro would be like parkour whereas XC would be like running at the high School track around the football field. they both have their own sets of challenges but you can stand on the sidelines and conclude which one is more than likely most difficult.

    but lets not derail the thread topic.

    Two completely different disciplines.

    The level of fitness it takes to be competitive in XC is beyond anything im capable/willing to do. Nino is a f@cking alien. However, I can let go of the brakes and my marginal skillset will hurl me down some tough courses/trails quick enough to put a smile on my face. To me, theres absolutely no joy in riding the same course for 8 laps of misery, but to others its a path to glory.

    In a lame attempt to get this thread headed in a positive direction -

    I am looking forward to this opening for riding. I enjoyed riding Angel Fire. I pedaled up once and ride the lift all the next day. It was worth my money to ride the lift. But I wanted to try pedaling too and I was with a buddy who wanted to pedal up.

    In my humble opinion - all riding is good, more riding is better. If one trail is not to your liking, ride some other trail. Slinging mud on somebody else or some other trail does not help the mountain bike world. Save that for the ones who want to close trails. Any trails. Even the trails you don't like.

    I'll get off my soap box now.

    I guess the blue/black is the one in the preview video? I'm curious as to what makes it blue/black? It all appeared to be a fairly smooth machine-cut track with jumps/berms...
    As for the "natural" black trails, does that translate to non-machine cut technical singletrack? I have dreams of pounding down something like "Mountain Goat" at Trestle... just shorter, of course, or RPR Super D with a lift (gah, how awesome would that be)...

    AFAIK, Seth has never done an XC race, but I can tell you from riding with the guy, he'd smash a Cat2 race no problem. You just gotta talk him into believing the 1.5hr worth of suffering would be worth it to prove ;p

    I think he meant he'd smash all the parts and frame on a cat2 bike.

    ha! thanks, and once I get my primer built I would consider doing an XC race. believe it or not Tasha and i were just talking about that a few nights ago. so during the big starting line take off, are you allowed to kick and throw elbows when engulfed in that big ass group of riders in the beginning or what?

    You only leave with 10-20 in XCO. My basic strategy is to tell Mom jokes to keep people from taking it too serious at the line then Hammer to be the first to singletrack.

    I think you have to be pretty fit to find the podium In all disciplines of cycling! That being said I’ve primarily been an XC rider since about 14 tossing in some bmx, downhill, and dual slalom for fun! Up until this April I would have said the most grueling race I had ever done was the trail of tears 100mi in 2004 in 100+ heat followed closely by 24hrs in the canyon on a four man team in 105+heat. This April I met my match with tha O’rock Enduro. After a day of practicing about a third of the stages I felt beat up. After completing the first stage of the race and then transitioning 8 miles and climbing 2000+ feet my body no longer wanted to stay on the bike, wrecking on the next two stages. I ended up completing the race mid pack for my age group but at some point contemplated my first DNF! The local Enduro races trail party puts on are no where near as taxing, but they make up for it in fun factor! Last spring I did 4 local XC races and had fun. A buddy of mine talked me into trying an Enduro in the fall and I it was the most fun I’ve have ever had at a race. Now I’m hooked! Say what you want about the trail party guys, but they seem to be good stewards for the sport or at least easy to work with as they keep getting new venues to build legal trails that are available to the public to ride.
