from the early 90's until the early 2000's, we raced at cliff cave quite a bit. some years, there were 3 or 4 events there. it was a super popular venue. really swoopy, flowing trails with a few fun g-outs and some cool rock stuff. for some reason, it has fallen out of favor and we haven't raced there in years.
over the last weekend, the gorc guys did some trail work there and the bluff side of the course has some new trail. i saddled up the mountain bike and took a few laps on wednesday morning and it was fun. the bluff side was fun and technical as it has always been. the other side has toned down quite a bit, with most of the g-outs having just disappeared. it was very smooth, though, and the famous, treacherous downhill has been rerouted, but not completely sorted.
all in all, i want to go back and have some more single track fun.
