RACE #3

Lowe’s Creek 

Eau Claire, WI

Sunday, September 30th

First Start Time: 9:00 AM

RACE DESCRIPTION:  After a short climb for the start line, racers will descend to the fast flowy Lowe’s creek section of the course followed by a series of ascends to get them to the highest point of the course.  From there they will negotiate several sections of singletrack with rock gardens, roots, and technical turns.  The lap finishes with a cruise around the camping area through the wooded Lowlands singletrack which flows well and allows racers to use their power to the max. Course distance for lap #1 is approximately six miles with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th laps being 5 miles.
