I checked out the course map, it looks cool, w/ a very small number of barriers apparently at this point (in keeping with the new UCI style). How long is the course? I'm not going, but I'd just like to know.

Interesting that for the USCF races they may add more barriers. Not sure I agree with Van der Poel about UCI course design, but then again, I like barriers.

I'll show up on Saturday for course pre-ride and then race Bs on Sunday morning. I wanted to race Masters 30+ also but couldn't work it in to my schedule.

See you this weekend. I'm interested to see the new Boulder course. Do you know if the Red Rocks course will be much different?

I can't wait to check out the new Boulder course, sounds like an office park. That might be good (no rocks?). Brian and his crew really made an effort to get away from the Research Park, I personally appreciate the effort.
As far as Red Rocks, I haven't heard a thing. Since it's the same location, be prepared for more of the same... Don't forget your Tufo slime.

See ya this week-end.
not a "mountain bike course"p lo

but for some reason i think it would have been faster on my mt bike (or some big knobby tires on the cross bike would have been helpful)????

but i am not complaining, i prefer it to be as technical as they can make it!

I'm going out to the RR course early with an extra large bag of carpet tacks to spread around just in case there aren't enough goatheads.
