Any word about the race on Sunday with a reroute on Yellow two way where it is flooded? I cant imagine that drying out enough by Sunday.

That part of the trail is a solid old gravel road. Won’t hurt the trail any to ride it if it’s still wet.

We are planning on racing Sunday, there is one receding large puddle that is on a road base section of the trail just past the finish/laps area. The rest of the trail is fantastic and ready to go so we are racing! Pre-registration will CLOSE at Noon Saturday... day of registration opening at 8:15am at the Riverbend unit. Reminder DNR Passport required or day of park pass. No parking at the Riverbend Unit ... Just Wheels in Motion, KOMZ, and the Michigan Mountain Bike Patrol along with the Start, Finish, Registration check in, and Day of registration all based there. Racers/Riders with 3 race starts you only Need to check in OR register 1/2 hour before your race start! 10AM Elite/Experts...no need to be there early if your racing at 12:30pm Sport classes or 2:30pm for the Beginners.

YES you will be riding through the puddle once per lap...No way around/ to avoid it. Have been river crossings in other events the rest of the trail is GREAT. It's a solid base section of the trail. I have spoke with a number of people who rode it yesterday and Lived to share their story;) (It's about 1/2 mile from the Start) The DNR is fine with it BUT we do have a date IF needed IF the trail gets hammered Saturday.
