Hanging Rock n Roll

Madison, IN

The second race in NSLA's inaugural season was held in the small picteresque town of Madison, IN perched on the edge of the Ohio Valley. The town sits, literally, on the edge of the valley. This means that half of the town is down next to the Ohio River, the other half of the town is several hundred feet higher. There are some really nice (read knarly) hills in this town. Next year the locals would like us to run, I believe its called, Michigan Hill. The roads about a mile long, with quit a few 180's. A couple are so bad there are mirrors for the nearby driveways! Unfortunately the road needs to be paved in a bad way.

Anniston, AL

The race at Mt. Cheaha on March 6th, was not only the inaugural race for NSLA it also kicked off the 1999 race season. The race was held on top of the highest point in Alabama, Mt. Cheaha State Park. While the race was not the greatest spectator wise, the resort like setting made this a nice race to attend.
