I guess I will have to try it one day.
I am going to miss Prospectors, going to Idaho for the national. As SoKal said, the first loop is usually pretty easy. They will throw in a special that will take points from the C, and maybe some B riders. It's tougher than you might imagine. At times it will seem like you are just trail riding, and suddenly you are on the gas and trying to stay on time. I think it was Prospectors last year, we rode for probably 10 miles at a 24 mph average through really easy terrain going out on the 2nd loop. It was hard not to wick it up, but that's what they want you to do, and then they throw in a check when you least expect. Enduro guys are some sneaky bastards
