If I was a promoter, I would make sure the expert class gets an expert level course in terms of distance and difficulty. There's way too many experts at the end of these races who are just sitting around smiling like they are not even warmed up. There's rarely anyone crying (pinch flats excepted), and their class is full of sports class riders. For instance at the Rally they should be climbing Snowsnake both laps and they should be climbing up Bova and then back down to Snowsnake on the first lap. If you don't see any experts pitching a fit and tossing their bikes into the woods, then you aren't doing something right!

With mountain bike races any damage that a race creates is repaired the very soon after.
Canceling is tough because you have to reschedule or loose the money invested. Reroutes are also tough because everyone wants their money's worth of single track. So we have always stuck to the philosophy of the race goes on no matter what. With stating that this is not the norm when it comes to riding, because you can obviously choose not ride causing no damage.

The confirmed date for the Winterfest Race is Sunday, January 27th.
The course will be pretty much the same, hopefully with some more snow.
It maybe be longer with the possibility of adding some groomed sections in the grassy areas.

This thread has been started so both riders and racers can post comments and/or questions about racing. To start things off, slower_than_u has written an article that goes over some basic etiquette that us veteran racers have taken for granted over our many years of racing.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
