Enough of the "That's not really a black is it?" comments. We live in Michigan for Pete's sake.
We do have some decent "blacks", but they are all up north. Even then, the steep sections are short.
Long story short, our blacks are your blues and even some greens. But remember, we ride the shittiest of shitty conditions so don't underestimate us lol.
When we go out west, we have to contend with the fear of steepness. When you guys come here (like you ever would anyway), you have to contend with ice, man-made crap, and slush all in one run. Plus we have to dodge meat rockets all the time.
I can't wait until next season when I can start going out west again.
