Got to run the course today and I must say it is pretty rocky and rough, typical Barstow. It is going to be really fast the first 15 miles or so the once you hit mm 22 crossing over stoddard wells rd. it gets rough. There are a few tight sections back in there that could get pretty jammed up if somebody gets stuck. There seemed to be quite a few blind type corners at tops of hills, one is at mm20 or so. After you cross back over hodge the course smoothes out quite a bit. A good spot to take pictures is where the course crosses hodge at mm 30.5. Can't wait for this weekend.
