Records for fastest BFC finishing time will always belong to Indian Lake. Inlet times are slower because of the Fern Mountain single-track.
Any BFC veteran knows that. They also know that while the Indian Lake finishes are faster, the Inlet finishes are wilder.
Unlike the soggy conditions of 2011, this year BFC racers will find the Moose River Plains to be (mostly) solid and the 3/4-mile Fern Mountain trails to be typical singletrack – until they get near the finish line.
The finish line approach will follow a path similar to that of two years ago but because of construction in Fern Park it will travel over a freshly graded stretch that will be steep, fast and loose with a slightly longer (and flat) sprint to the finish line.
NOTE: the finish line approach will not be ready to pre-ride until Friday June 7 and there will still be construction workers in the area.
