We would like to thank all of the wonderful riders we had visit over the years. There are many good memories of the 12 X Bar Shoot Out mountain bike races and the hundreds of riders who came to pick their way through the "rock garden" over the past 15+ years- to all of you, many thanks and Happy Trails!
