 Nestoroff in second riding most of the track on Cush Core only in rear, impressive ride. Also very impressive, Max Beaupre in 5th on his single crown @Cannondale Jekyll. Killer result for Max. Cameron Mader was second in seeding behind Dooley and came through the finish 6th with a broken chain. DHSE is going to be killer this season!

 Walker 10th with a muddy skull from an off course wreck. Probably would have slotted 3rd or 4th.

 2-4 from SoCal! Nice work. I hear the riding in Bend is sick, maybe consider moving there. They love people from CA.

 to follow up, I would assume to get in as much saddle time before the World Cup to familiarize himself with all the new frame and componentry of his new ride.

Again, to "assume", he can get way more runs & testing done on a full weekend of shuttles at #ridetherock than limited practice, seeding and race runs at TTC. Sucks for the fans though b/c we all want the US heavy hitters in attendance.

But I get it "assuming" my guess is right.
