Black Earth 10 - Possible New CourseSee the new possible course: 2018 may have a more exciting and better course (though the original is good, but we are thinking change!) that is still mostly flat (except for a couple fun hills), fast, and simple like the course in prior years! The course was scouted on Sept 30th, and no show stoppers were found yet, though we have to be conscious of safety. A video was posted on the night of Oct 1st, and another on Oct 2nd (low profile view). The old course video was updated and reformatted. There is still more to come regarding the new possible route.
