This course will be mostly exciting and quick moving sigle track. Pre-race course riding is open during registration. Race day registration is allowed. This is an excellent way for both first time riders and veteran racers to enjoy a professionally managed mountain biking event.

Race #5 will be held on the beautiful trails of Falling Creek Camp on Sunday, October 23rd, 2011. For those that rode mountain bikes this past summer, please take a look at the routes of the two courses used during the first race at FCC this past April 17, 2011.
