*UPDATE OF SUNDAY'S SCHEDULE IS POSTE4D BELOW.
UPDATE AS OF 8/17/18 WET WEATHER CHANGES.
Due to rain this morning and the sensitivity of the leatherwood trails we are pushing Friday practice to the two Passion Play stages from 12-6pm. Shuttles will be available at the bottom of Holy Roller. They will still be slick, but drain well. So use caution. The loop is about 4.5 miles starting from drop off point at top of magnetic road. Atonement is a double black diamond trail. Use extreme caution and look before you leap.
The Saturday Leatherwood Day Race start will be pushed back a few hours to allow riders to practice stages. We will shorten Saturday to four stages to help riders be able to see most or all of stages in practice time allotted.
Miner's Rock, DH 6, DH 5, & DH 4.
The other Sunday stage from end of Roark road to ball field will be available this afternoon. Best way to see is have drop at Roark, and arrange pick up at ball field.
