The majority of the Fingers trail will be cut due to length of course and weather conditions. The course will be properly marked and taped for the morning practice. XC practice is from 7:30 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. if athletes would like to preview this section of course. This is what was originally marked Pro XC course in the Fingers section of the course.

Athletes 15 plus will be doing the full amateur course.

All athletes tomorrow will not ride the downhill rock garden. Athletes are not allowed tech support in the feed zone and only water/food handups as well as eyewear. No pit passes are required for tomorrow.

See you tomorrow,
