Powers was the dominant winner of TICC Day 1 last year, storming through the mud on a course he later referred to as one of the best in North America. Teammate Tim Johnson showcased his climbing and technical skills by winning on the hilly course on Day 2. This year's races will feature similar courses with several refinements.
