5 Enduro segments today laced the Rothrock State Forest located 20min from camp. The majority of climbing was on the now familiar leaf covered rock and root singletrack under the deciduous tree canopy, with the descents increasing in technical challenge as the day wore on.
The entire hill appears to be made up of smashed rock. Some loose, some embedded, some hidden by the leaf litter (A E Landes credit)
The day essentially started and finished outside a diner in State College which meant minimal delay for post race refuel!
Ed felt obliged to sample a Cheese Steak - the Philli signature dish
Thats a big day ahead right there on that map
