I want to add to David and Ron's comments that the Jedi was well worth the
drive and the PISTAS did an awesome job. With the small turn out just about
everyone medaled in the Short Track and the Super D was Super fun - PS: A
downhill bike was not necessarily an advantage!!!
The XC course was great, well marked, and well supported with aid stations.
Just a ton of fun & a real MTB race.

Thanks to all the volunteers, race organizers and especially Pistis Cycling
for putting on a "real" mountain bike race. The setting for the race and the
tons of single-track were just amazing. I loved the three ice cold creek
crossings, they added an extra cool factor to the race. The high speed
downhill roads and trails were long and fast. The climbs reminded me of the
T.O.E. and I was almost D.O.A. at the finish but I wouldn't have it any
I am only sorry we did not do the short track and super D race on Saturday.
Even though we made the trip from Portland it was well worth it for the
atmosphere and food that was included with the race fee. Thumbs up to all
the organizers and participants at this race. We will be back next year for
sure. If you mtn bike race put this race on your to do list for next year.
