Sturdy Dirty Women's Enduro Series, Round One, 2017 - Tiger Mountain

Jun 20, 2017
by Chris Mcfarland  
June in the Pacific Northwest has a nasty reputation of being particularly wet despite being a summer month. We just never know what we'll get. And after last years Sturdy Dirty, where Mother Nature decided to throw every single type of fowl weather element at us, the organizers were understandably nervous. But you haven't lived until you've seen a group of men dressed up like Hooters waitresses in very tight shorts and tank tops, heckling the lady racers, in 40-degree rain and sleet. Or when the Pro Women dropped in on their last, and hardest stage, right as a slimy mixture of freezing rain and slush started to fall on the course.

This year turned out to be a little different. The riders were treated to overcast, if not a little bit muggy conditions. And with a bit of precipitation from the day before, the course on Tiger Mountain was running fast and producing smiles. The whole day turned out perfect.

Now we just have Oakridge, O.R. on August 19th and Big Bear, C.A. on October 14th. Hopefully, we will see you all out there.
