Tomorrow is the big day! The test of metal is quite the mountain bike event with the 800 person mass start and 67 kms of point-to-point racing. Whether you are a veteran racer or competing in this event for the first time we Muddbunnies wish you the best of luck and super fun time! When you’re done, come visit our tent at the finish line!
The Test of Metal’s trail maintenance crew has the re-route for lower Roller Coaster nearly complete – A great improvement for that section of heavily-used trail. The new trail will be mechanically compacted, and it will be about 50 meters longer and a bit cruisier than the old trail, offering a much more enjoyable descent that maintains the same flavour as the upper sections of the trail.
The maintenance crew has been busy on the trails for close to a month. There are improvements to the Plunge, including some new bridges, and lots of brushing, drainage improvements, raking, and deadfall removal on the rest of the course.
Good luck to all of the 2012 racers!!!
