So, on Pine Hollow.. Yes, you must do it if you have not. Next year will have the Enduro style event again (twice around), the venue is very, very pretty; it's so grassroots and you can step outside your A-Frame and tent and have your gear set up in T1/T2 in under 5min.
Next year there are some changes that will take the bikes finally and completely off gravel so there's that too..
The only downside I can think of? I wish I had more time out there, it's that nice.
Maybe folks who also like out there would be up for doing a training weekend sometime out there? Anybody game? :)
