Extreme Duo Mountain Bike Race update

A bunch of us have been busy working on the route for the upcoming Extreme Mtb. race here on Bonaire. Miguel and 15 brave souls did a test ride on the first half of the route this morning. Thanks, Miguel, for the great pictures I did a solo ride on the second half of the course yesterday morning. When you look at the above picture, think about 91 degrees F and a heat index well over 100 F and NO wind. It was brutal out there this weekend.

The riders in the above photos are at the end of today' s ride, which was actually not quite half way through the race course. This is right by the land sailing track part way between Kralendijk and Rincon.

This shot looks like the pink rock trail, which is between Dos Pos and Washington Park.

More pictures from this morning can be seen on the Bonaire Wellness web site.

The race route includes a couple of the trails that Joost and I opened up in Washington Park last winter.

You can see the new improved 80 km long route on Map My Run. Miguel has been advertising 75 km, so we might have to chop a little bit out of the loop. :)
