Mccubbins Gulch, OR
National Forest Near Bear Springs Ranger Station
Some decades ago Paul Thomasberg Jim Thornton and Petr Kakes designed a course that made racers cry after 50+ miles. Paul’s computer was miscalibrated by 40% and the first year PRO winner was out there for 4 1/2 hrs. The ones who didn’t cry got lost . Actually they may have cried too- we just don’t know it.
OK let’s get serious. BST has lot to offer but the name Trap was used for a reason. The Bear Springs area has it’s beauty, you just need to look at it instead of the wheel in front of you. Since we use portions of the OHV area we do have lot of intersections to deal with. Once you get of the moto trails the challenge will start. The race is known for it’s difficulty as well as for snow on the course whenever mother nature decides to send it in late March and April. As usually Petr and his crew will be there on time to remove the cyclocross sections of the course and welcome you at the finish with the Pilsner Urquell. Dont forget about the Short Track the day prior.
