    Fun, fast and challenging (for endurance)... about 50kms in you have to deal with the plunge which is interesting if you're fatigued! Technically, it's not difficult overall... but considering it's 60 kms it will wear on you (especially the 9 mile climb... 800 meters of straight fire road climbing with a steep rocky section up to Ring Creek for good measure). Nice fast descent on Ring Creek for almost 10 kms (including the plunge) forces pure concentration at 30 km/h !

    One of the greatest races in N America. App 46 mile course but virtually impossible to find without a guide or good Garmin. There are many great trails all over the area. Many of the periferial single track trails are better riding than the actual TOM course.
