DEER FLY CHASE – Race Map Is Ready, Are You?

by Noah on September 6, 2011

As promised, here is the race map for the 2011 Deer Fly Chase.

The route promises something for every racer – - fast and open, hilly and rocky, tight and technical!

After a paced rollout, the race WILL separate on Rattlesnake Hill.  Both routes feature the great technical singletrack trails at Hickory Ridge, including the 50 foot long boardwalk water crossing.  Look closely at the map – - the Long route and Short route – - separate at approximately 14 miles into the race.  The Long race will include a long climb on Deer Fly trail, plus a trip to Tram Lake trail.

For those that want to do me a favor, and yourselves – - pre-register for the race today.  You won’t want to miss out on this race.

Who wants to pre-ride the course?

Just curious about the long ride. I mapped out the extra loop that shows the long route and it is only about 4.7 miles. If the short race is 15 miles that would make th e long only 19.7ish? Or am I missing something that shouldn’t be in the short race that is on the long besides that. It looks like everything except that Tram Lake trail part is on the short route. Thats why I was asking earlier.

Good observation. I will make some updates to the route to make the short route shorter, and the long route longer. The changes that I am thinking about will not impact the overall flow too much. Stay tuned….

I pre-rode all of the single track at Hickory last night and it is in fantastic shape. Excellent trail design with good flow. The single track sheds water very well because after 2 days of light steady rain, there was no standing water on the single track. Some of the ski trails were a little squishy in low spots but by Saturday, those should be better. Nice job CORBA trail designers and builders! Let’s hope we get a good turnout for the race because it should be a very fun course.
