Does anyone know what the comparison is like between the loop for the Firecracker 50 in Breck compared to the Silver rush 50 in Leadville? Mainly wondering whether the Silver Rush is full of sections like there are in Breck with the nasty, rocky fields and downhills at the different points like coming off Lincoln hill, the last 'rocky' half mile before the switch backs at the bottom of the Firecracker course, and the muddy/rocky sections up on the single track after you hit the single track at the top of Boreas Pass? I don't mind climbing, but i am not looking forward to the rocky @ss beating i take in Breck every year. I just suck at the technical stuff.
