Race Description: Dillon Rocks! You want technical tough, knee busting rock gardens? Come to Dillon Rocks. The race starts with a short paved prolog before diving into the pure singletrack for the entire race loop. Climbing? Not a ton on this course but it does have  winding switch backs after the field loop, a hike a bike and a few other sections to keep you honest. Novice course includes one of  the two rock gardens. Everyone else must pay the piper!
