Greenbriar is probably the easiest in terms of terrain.. if you can handle the sand. It is the first enduro of the year but that's why we have RAC passes! :deal:

With Greenbrier (the easiest) come and gone... what is 2nd easiest for an old man on an old bike? :killingme:

Next two looks like Delaware and Broad Mountain. Any opinions between the two?

If you're looking at me.... I've not done either so I couldn't really advise you. Except to echo what others have said, go, sign up on a late row and treat it like a trail ride... ....with check points. Generally the trails are fun and by the time you get to them well marked. Just have fun!

Hey Marylander, that extra roll chart you have would be great. Where can we meet up?

DE and NJ rounds are going to be the easiest. PA/NY are going to be rocky and technical.


Just fyi, if Tough like RORR is a 10, then the RORR enduro is about a 9 :lol2:



Side note, has anybody else here done the TLR? I ran it the first year when it poured and poured and poured rain. Was not enjoyable. I'd like to try it again but those a-holes decided not to have a C class which put out a lot of folks :censored: I think they brought it back this year combined with B, but I haven't really looked that closely at it.

Just fyi, they are doing it all start controls which means you don't need to worry about time keeping.
Our event will consist of possibly 10 four mile long sections. with approx. 25 miles of transfer totaling about 65 to a 70 mile course. The gas stop will be back at the start with a 30 min pause. There is absolutely no time keeping necessary to run this event. All check in to sections will be start controls and all checks out of the sections will be late. Ample resets at the end of late sections plus free time to get to the next section. Our drawing date is April 20th at 7pm. Four per row till the "C" rows than 5 per row allowed. All rows will be filled during drawing--meaning none will be left open for late entries. Riders list, info sheet and route sheet posted no later than April 25th. More info posted later. ***** FYI***** For those who did not enjoy the stick farm sections last year; fear not, cause both of those trails have been eliminated. NO MORE STICK FARMS THIS YEAR.

So I guess that means I have to get my application in by April 20th and then its a lottery draw for slots??

What would a "stick farm" section have looked like, if it was still being used? Not a term I am familiar with....

Stick farms are extremely tight trees, generally less that handle bar width apart so you have to wiggle the bars through.


You can still sign up the day of, the drawing is just for sorting out pre entries.
