A big thanks to Peter Mills  and Chase Williams  for all their hard work and dedication. Peter was our main trail builder and added many new berms and flow to the race course. Chase aka THE INTERN helped us out learning all jobs for running a mountain bike park.

This 5 K DH course was entirely different from the past 5 K DH races. Peter Mills and company spent much of the summer working on the trail # 26 The Cliffs of Insanity seen here:

The stream crossing is such a wonderful natural feature at Whiteface. It was so cool to incorporate that into this race course:
