Soldier Hollow Pre-Ride

Posted by on Aug 25, 2005 in Uncategorized | No Comments

So, we are cruising along the race course for the 24 Hours of Soldier Hollow and we come around a corner. What is waiting for us on the road? Yeah a freakin’ COUGAR! This kind, not one of these It was taking its sweet time walking down the road, away from us thankfully. My first thought was, “is that thing gonna be sitting hungry in the trees when I am all alone on a lonely night lap?” So yeah, that got our blood flowing. Wish I had the camera with me, I’ve never actually seen one in the wild before.

Other than the man eating cat sighting, the course was pretty sweet. It is about 13 miles long, and consists of some nice moderate single track climbing, and then a hammer fest smooth dirt road climb, and then a somewhat sketchy double track descent. It is a course that fits my style, and I think I will be able to churn out a good number of laps. Let’s just hope I don’t end up like this!
