 It's says to bring fuel for the second loop...I'm assuming then that this will be the one that does not run through town and out to Hogback?

I believe all 2 or 3 loops start and end at the Fire Hall.  I plan to have fuel back at my truck.

Here is a printable flyer for pre-registering:

Agreed, 

There is NO FUEL in Fairville near the Firehall hence the warning to bring fuel for the 2nd loop.
 
Same as last year. 

If memory serves, not many took advantage of the second loop.
 
When we got back from doing both, there weren't many trucks and trailers left in the lot.
 
I'm not so sure many guys have the ambition to do both loops or they don't understand , come in , get gas, get back out there.

I think for many, they get back after loop 1 and fiddle around, get something to eat and look a the watches and decide against going back out because the pissed an hour or 2 away at the Firehall.

LOL.  True dat!

For whatever reasons, I think a lot of guys have bikes that collect a lot dust ALL year.  And by the time the Monkey Butt rolls around they have only a few hours of actual dirt time under their belts.  And I've seen a lot of guys ride it like a MX or HS, balls to the wall, and at the end of the first loop they are pooped.

Their loss I guess, more sweet unmolested single track for us.

This year, Hancock required a $120 2-day entry.  And I watched the vapor camped next to us pack up and leave at noon on Saturday.  WTH???

Got it...just wasnt thinking of it in that light; I always bring fuel and I think most do.

When they say bring fuel for loop 2,  I took it to mean Id need fuel on the loop.

It was an awesome ride .... except for the Wayne County yocals running the roads without as even as much as a headlight.  I am surprised that they wore helmets instead of a backwards Stihl or Metal Melissa ball cap.    ;)

Also at the gas and snack stop at Swift's Landing Park, I guess Bat $hit drove his bike into the park pavilion, up on the picnic table, did a donut on the cement inside of the pavilion, and then roosted and tore up the sod as he left.  But I am sure that he will author a well written apology to the club, and contact the town and offer to pay for the damages.  Otherwise, the club is responsible for paying for the damages and may not be able to use the park for future events.

OK, here is some of the details:

Loop 1
- 66 miles total without the 2 hero sections
- 14 trail sections (not including the 2 hero sections)
- Optional road ride to the gas station
- Snack Stop at Swift's Landing Park
- I did one of the hero sections and finished with 69.7 miles on my odometer

Loop 2
- 34 miles total without the 4 hero sections
- 7 trail sections (not including the 4 hero sections)
- One trail section was over 12 miles long

- Plenty of Resets
- Well arrowed
- Fairly accurate route sheet
- Chicken BBQ the night before
- $8 food credit with entry, good with the fire department
- Plenty of door prizes

Did I miss anything?

- Some guys finished with over 109 miles on their odometer

The 2nd hero section on the first loop was not marked well. I saw 1 blue/white arrow and it led out to the road and that was it.
The 1st loop was perfect for the Sallys. Long and easy so people felt satisfied just doing that section. The 2nd loop for the real riders had more difficult trails with less road breaks to make those riders happy. Good balance
