 Dude is fast. I was going to make some tongue-in-cheek comment but decided it was biting off more than I could chew.

 Yeah, but as mentioned in some of the above comments, the track conditions really went to hell about 1/2 way through the Elite mens race. Sounds like the Jrs got their race in before the brown stuff hit the fan. That said, several of the Jrs are legit fast (as in Top 20 Elite fast, but not podium fast quite yet).

 Yeah Jackson Goldstone had the fastest time of the day I believe. Helps to come down when it's dry, but I'm still fricken impressed.
