    We'll be there Saturday morning to work and ride, party, camp, then probably head home Sun. Unless we just can't help but work more on the trail Sun!! lol

    Well, since someone who I shall not name (rhymes with Seedly) has convinced me to try DSG as my 1st ever MTB race, I'd like to come down and help out and get familiar with the trail. But, unfortunately, I can't make it Saturday. If I come down Sunday morning will anyone be up for riding after the work is done and before heading home? (And yes, I will probably also be little hungover, so no excuses BikerGirl!)

    We're planning on coming down from Frankllin tomorrow morning to work and ride. Is there a meeting place or just find everyone in the parking lot?

    Google Maps shows the link as 240 Shelbyville Hwy
    Fayetteville, TN 37334

    Is that the actual address if I wanted to enter it into my GPS?

    That should get you there. You'll see a wooden sign for Cotton Mill Preserve. Tough to miss it.


    This should be a good chance to ride the trails and move some dirt as we get geared up for the big event. The trial is shaping up nicely, and I guarantee you'll love some of the new stuff we've added. It flows very well and almost makes you forget the hills by the end of the lap.

    Thanks in advance for all who make the trip!

    Don't forget that we're throwing this party to raise some money for Sorba. We hit a bit over $3,500 last year and we'd like to at least double that this go round.

    Good to meet the gang on Saturday. The trail is sick...a real butt-kicker. It's like that old Bill Cosby skit about walking to school in the snow as a kid..."uphill, both ways". I can only imagine how good (or tired of) climbing rock gardens you would get during the DSG.

    Special thanks to Reed and Amy for letting me ride tail-end Charlie. They took the uber-scenic route and I swore we saw a sign for Knoxville along the way

    Looking forward to the race Sunday and maybe even the DSG...maybe.

    Agree, great weekend. Thanks to everyone who come out and helped. And Thanks to Clay, Hunter and Buddy for being such good host. I really love Cotton Mill farm... AKA Clayeville.

    I feel like we got a lot done. The trail is ready for Crude XC. .... Just my opinion. And I'm not trying to scare anyone. But that is a very hard and burtal lap bassackwards. Those XC guys are going to be hurting for certin next weeked.

    Looking forward to racing on the course bassackwards.

    We had a great weekend working and riding! The Crude XC course will be extremely hard for those who have never been out to Fayetteville and the course for DSG is just plain crazy! Hills galore!! I can't wait!

    Chris and Alek, it was great meeting you and thanks riding with us. I hope you enjoyed our trip to Knoxville with the scenic views. Lol. See you Sunday!

    A big thanks to Clay for making it a great weekend and having a great course for us to ride!
