Thankfully, for those of us who couldn't make the pilgrimage to Crankworx, there was a downhill race to be had in the U.S. of A. In Brian Head, Utah to be precise. Brian Head is a small ski resort three hours north of Vegas and three and a half hours south of Salt Lake. They have five lift serviced MTB trails and several surrounding shuttle trails.

Brian Head is the highest ski resort in Utah. It is 9,600ft at the base (2,926m). This provided cool/damp conditions for some awesome summer racing.

Lil' Gritty was the trail chosen for this years race. The trail started out very wet because it rained and hailed right before the race. Midway through the lineup the lift went on lighting hold long enough for the trail to dry up for the Pro and Cat. 1 racers.
