Upcoming Regional X-Terra's
Posted 13 May 2012 - 06:15 PM
June 9th is X-Terra Eureka Springs in Arkansas. This is about 5 hours from STL and features a fairly challenging coarse. The mountain bike coarse is 13 miles and favors a strong technical rider. There are several challenging sustained climbs, some fast technical descents, and several rock garden areas. The 5 mile run can be fairly painful as well with two challenging sustained climbs in the first two miles. Runers then top out and the final 1.5 to 2 miles is flat and slightly down hill.
June 23rd is X-Terra Scales Lake just outside Evansville Indiana. This is about a 2.5 to 3 hour drive from STL and is an all around fun coarse. This is a two lap 5.5 mile bike loop and is like riding a bmx track with lots of curvy, flowy, terrain. The run is a 3.3 mile single loop with multiple steep quick climbs and descents.
June 30th is X-Terra Lock 4 Blast in Gallatin Tennessee. This is about a 5 hour drive from STL and features an good all around coarse. The bike coarse is a very flowy, fast two lap 6 mile loop followed by a two lap 2.1 mile run loop.
These are all very well run events with good race organizers....
