Thanks guys. My main concern was that I didnt want to just completely get in over my head and embarrass myself, but it doesnt sound like that is really the case. I may try Cranksgiving. Its basically downhill from what I gather, and thats ok. I was kinda of looking for something in between. Ive noticed Im faster on downhills than a lot of the XC guys Ive ridden with, but on the super steep grades I tire out before them. Im 5’11”, 220 lbs. I have a Giant Trance X1 circa 2011. I think I may just enter it, blast the downhills, and see where I am in the beginner class. Thanks for the help
