S&S Trails, together with Scott Schaeffer from Southern Elite Racing, hosted the 9th annual Excruciation Exam endurance mountain bike race on the first Saturday of the new year. Many thanks to go to the owners of Bluff Creek Ranch and Rocky Hill Ranch for allowing access to their trails to help make the event a true endurance mountain bike race, not just a race on dirt roads that racers happen to ride on a mountain bike. Now that we have a large and regularly attending volunteer force that is well-trained in addition to hard working, the event has been running smoother and better every year. And just like the event from 2 years ago, we had new machine-built trail completed just in time for the race, and we got lots of good feedback on that new extension from the end of the Cliffhanger section.
