Winter Thaw Race at Yellow River

Postby CycleYouth » Mon Dec 23, 2013 1:31 pm

Feb 16th, 2014, XC race at Yellow river in Stone Mtn.
We had a good ride Saturday in the mist at Yellow River riding the race course loop. The loop is on the "Creek Side" and uses most of the available trail. While it is hard to navigate through the maze of trails made since the wide-path trails are top of the old single track, once you know the route it is a very fun loop. The 7 mile loop maximizes use of single track.
The route has been modified from the 2013 configuration and riders say it flows better this way.
The race GPS file is on the CycleYouth.com site under RACE, so you can try a self-guided ride.
We have a great kids loop to for ages 8-11 that is a 1.6 mile loop made as flat as possible.
We plan to do a group ride to show the loop again in January. Follow us https://www.facebook.com/WinterThaw

Great course this year. I rode the course on Sunday and can't believe how much trail you were able to get in that space. Looking forward to the race!

cycleyouth.com has the race as SATURDAY the 16th. However according to the calendar I'm looking at, the 16th is actually SUNDAY.

So is the date or the day incorrect? or am I not getting something here...

Weather is actually looking good for this race--- well around 50 which looks pretty warm considering this past week.

How bad will the course be though? All the dirt here in midtown is crazy soggy. Thinking it might be a hot mess.

Shey? Andy? Thoughts?
