Paul, Mark, and Kathleen at the start of the cat 4 race.
The course started off wet at dried to sorta wet by the time the last race at 1:30 started. There was a soggy 360 degree turn right out from the start that took down Paul and Kathleen at the beginning of the cat 4 race but they were back up quickly and chasing the pack.
Paul coming up through the burrs.
After the barriers there was a sweet down hill with a fast off camber turn the had a nice straw bail leaning against the tree you would hit if you lost control. Fortunately it looked like no one needed it. After that was another soggy area and a long climb before a long down hill with a couple of rather technical turns. Right at the end there was a major "run" up which was so steep and muddy it left most of us walking, on either side there was a nice planting of burrs just waiting to attach themselves for the rest of the race.
