Nice pics.
That track looks challenging with all that elevation change. What did you find that you liked about the track the most?

It didnt look like a lot of run-off between the track and the hay rolls against that fence, creepy.


The 1st pic is what I am refering to

Yep! Pics are from TTD this past weekend. The track is great with some awesome elevation changes. But looks are not deceiving...not much run off area at all. Surface was kind of slick this past weekend from recent rain and it was very windy so it kept it pretty dusty. But a very interesting track and can't wait to go back!

Actually had a great turnout. Pics of track layout was taken early before sessions began. Other than that was just trying to get some pics of some individual riders.

The track was a freakin BLAST! I loved all the elavation changes and I found that I loved the uphill turns the most! Track was a little slick due to the high wind blowing dust on the track surface but it wasn't to big of an issue for me! Cant wait to get out there again!

That track is always slick according to the members there. They say it doesn't really "come in" until it's had temps of 90* for a few hours.

I can't wait until we race there in September!
