Vulture's Knob - "It's a Groovy Race Season"TRAIL UPDATE: as of Friday night
Vulture's Knob Race Update: pre-riders coming off the course tonight stating its in great condition, only expected puddles here and there, everyones prediction is trail will set up nicely to darn near perfect conditions by tomorrow afternoon. FYI: VKnob typically takes a day or so to get 90% dry which is why we hold spring events at this venue. The hillside topography & soil mixture make for good drainage conditions. The forecast is looking great.
