The Grinch's Lair

The original Grinch's Lair is a livestock scale house painted and illuminated in Grinch Green. You have to hit this sandtrap at at the right angles and traverse a rather nasty exit. Getting into the Lair is easy...getting out is the trick as the exit is narrow and, admittedly, really doesn't quite meet UCI regulations. But its a rider favorite so we leave it in there for the USAC and C2 races! Let's face it, even though it down't quite meet the rules, it's still a lot of fun to ride!

In 2014 we introduced the all NEW Grinch's Lair. This 70 meter (220 ft) sandtrap is the largest in the North America! You better fly into the NEW Grinch's Lair at full gas if you want to get out without a hitch! Better respect the Grinch or he's sure to catch your wheel in the depths of his Lair!
