    Rocky Hill Super D

    That looks like it runs tighter along the fenceline. Haven't been there in a year or two, but I usually pull back into the trees and do some of the trails versus just running out in the open.

    Paul Uhl built a new trail that makes up most of the Super D course, I know it was completed in April and the Strava KOM is from the December Marathon. That looks like the normal last piece of trail that gives every race at RHR a welcome downhill finish.

    I was there this weekend and it looked like they had started to mark the course. I didn't pay close enough attention to the whole thing, but it looked like part of the Super D was marked from the rest stop #1 down part of fat chuck's. It looks like the map you linked was going down the West side, and I think what I saw was the east side.

    Is it true that you can't ride RHR with bars wider than 27"?

    I rode there with 30"s a couple months back for the Rockshox Demo.

    Let's see...first set of too-close-for-comfort trees were on the up side of a big whoop - I was paying attention to the wash at the bottom and didn't scope far enough ahead, had my only spectacular crash of the day at that point. Otherwise, they are well signed and there are only a handful of them. Of course, I was hyper-aware after that first incident!

    As close to super d as you get in a region with no mountains.
    So often times it happens, that we live our lives in chains, and never even know we have the key.


    Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.

    Actually, I shouldn't be jumping any jumps there. Last time I tried that at RHR, I shattered my femur.
