Just when you thought the course could not get any longer!!!
Heavy logging on the steep decsent of Bare mountain has led to a temporary re-routing. The new line is a bit longer and, due to hundreds of fallen trees, quite a bit slower.
Last year, USA oddsmaker Danny Sheridan correctly called the breaking of the elusive two-hour barrier. For 2019, Danny says: "The record for the women is very likely to fall, while the men's race, featuring four past champions and seven others who have placed in the Top-5, could be a classic!"
"As always, finish times will be heavily influenced by the conditions. Due to recent rain and, of course, logging, I've added 3% on to everyone's finish time under normal conditions"
