    ORAMM is a ridiculously hard route. Lots of road and gravel, but the majority of descents are on singletrack.

    The trails here are classic Pisgah: technical, steep, rugged, remote.

    Curtis Creek Road is the worst road in the history of roads. It just goes on for ever and ever.

    I would definitely race it again, but I would never go ride the loop "for fun." It's too brutal.
