Dual Slalom action at the 2016 DVO Mob n Mojave

Round 2 of the 2016 DVO Winter Gravity Series is now in the books with this past weekends, Mob n Mojave event at Bootleg Canyon in Boulder City, Nevada. With temperatures in the 70's all weekend and racers coming from as far away as Alaska and the Yukon Territory, many were basking in the warmth as if winter did not exist at all. Not one to bad-mouth winter, but between the temps in the 70's, the sunny skies and a Bootleg Canyon MTB race, this event was hard to pass up in February. Friday was open practice for all 3 of the events disciplines; Super D, Dual Slalom and Downhill. With 276 gravity racers in attendance, this gravity event was off to a festive start.

Greg Gibson racing for Trucker Co & Big Bear Freeriders, took 1st in the Men's Pro with a time of 9:34.06. Greg not only rides for Trucker Co he is the companies owner/operator. A little further down in this story, you will see just one of the many examples how Greg and Trucker Co help support the growing gravity youth scene.

Fast forward just a couple more hours to 1:00 pm on Saturday and the Dual Slalom Seeding Runs are now center stage. Still sporting the DVO green and All Mountain Cyclery (AMC) orange start box from last months State Champs event, all systems were proper and full speed ahead, including All Mountain Cyclery's traditional Pizza Party alongside the race track. The Dual Slalom race had the right atmosphere and AMC always sees to that!

Battling out in the Juniors is Ryan Wischmeyer #94 against Dante Silva #95. Both amazing competitors, but young Mr Silva just edged out Ryan to take a first place in their category in a very exciting race to witness. Just look how fun that looks.

Sunday: The day started off with 8:00 am shuttles for additional open practice, course walks and continued with consistently picture perfect weather. Intense Palmer Project's, Steven the Swaltonator Walton was on fire as usual. The Swaltonator blazed across the finish line in 4:36.35 which made him the fastest Junior Expert of the Day which also earned him the well deserved $100 cash from Trucker Co. That time would have been 4th in the Pro field. Picture by: Phillip Beckman.

 My apologies to Bryn Bingham who clearly had the fastest time of the day in Super with a 9:10.95. I didn't think that was possible? Great job dude!
