Overall, this race had everything, and the set-up and support was top notch. The first 5 miles were flat and fast crushed granite greenbelt; from there it took a turn onto pavement into a couple of lung burning climbs, and some nice downhill sections for about another 5 miles. Then you get to the Isle du Bois (IDB) trail, which is some of the most technical single track in North Texas. Rock gardens are the norm, with some sandpits thrown in to really test your skills, but overall the trail flows really well. 10 miles of this with a good bit of elevation gain and loss and then we headed back the way we came through the pavement hills, and finishing on the superfast greenbelt.
