-- Be prepared for a course over 10 km in length.
-- Due to the height of control stands, you will have to dismount at most controls to use your SI stick.
-- The printed map size is 11x17 (28 x 43 cm). If you are using a map plate on your bicycle, you will have to affix it there on your race time.
-- Recent heavy rains have caused severe erosion on some of the trails going down slopes. USE CAUTION.
