That's pretty cool. Should I come out of retirement for this???
The granddaddy of all the races is the Double-Double, that will incorporate all four segments of racing into one. Entrants will begin with a 9.2km mountain bike ride, followed by a 2km trail run, then switch to the track for a 12km road cycle, ending with a 4km run.
next up:


This broken wing will fly again
One fine day
This blackbird's mute gonna sing again
One fine day

So all you sinners come out
And all you drunkards crawl out
Come into the light of one fine day

Oh man I've always wanted to ride that circuit, ever since checking out American LeMans series races there... ! Very neat, hope it's successful.

Anyone know about these MTB trails?? I've never heard of them before, didn't know the property featured such things?

They went a little nuts with the permutations... the Double-Double sounds up my alley, though! :)
