"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Bikers went fast. And they went slow. There was a cacophony of "old man noises" heard after about 8 p.m. And it wasn't pretty. I imagine it was much like backstage after a Rolling Stones concert, with less groupies. 83 people showed up for the first race in 2007! How incredible is that? Really shows that Casco Bay Sports identified a niche, a strong market need. Well done. The torches, fire and string trio were classy touches, as were the nicely etched beer mugs for 1st places." - Matt Wick-
The race course will take place entirely on the awesome singletrack network located on the East side of Route 9. The course is fast with some steep climbs, fun downhills, and technical sections mixed in.
