Course Description

Flat and fast with turns that again demand your judgment. Bring your tactical sense but don’t forget your ‘cross skills for the shootout in it’s spectacular setting by the lake.

#protip by Steve Fisher – “Pick some fast tires for today if you can. Not necessarily more pressure though because you need to corner well through the twisty sections.”

Driving Directions

Encouraged transportation modes that are low to no impact:

  • Riding to the venue via the Burke Gilman
  • Car-pooling with team mates
