Course Description

For the past few years, we have celebrated endemic and non-endemic heroes and named our Silver Lake race after a variety of athletes.  For 2019, we honor one of the tallest humans on earth, Senegalese native Tacko Fall.  Tacko stands 7 feet, 7 inches tall, weighs 311 pounds, and has a standing reach of 10 feet, 2 inches.   Tacko played college basketball for the University of Central Florida, and signed a contract in 2019 with the Boston Celtics.   We are inspired by Tacko Fall’s curiosity to come to the US as a 16 year old, his academic standing in college, and his underdog/un-drafted status as he enters the NBA.

You’ll need the every bit of a 7’7 athlete’s stride to run the hills, sand, more hills, more sand at Silver Lake. This venue demands a lot of muscle and technique. Numerous tricky turns with multiple lines to choose from. The sand is navigable to those with the speed and technique to master it. You might make up time on the hills, lose it in the sand and downhill…a very entertaining course.

#protip by Steve Fisher – “Break this one into small sections and attack each one with focus. Stay light on the front wheel through the sand pits and attack each climb.”
