Kathy Pruitt, Pro Women Winner is more known for her downhill prowess but the Santa Cruz Demo Event Coordinator decided to race at the last minute. She was sitting in second going into day #2 but ended up victorious.  "I really liked the stages today because I feel they play to my talents, which are looking forward and recognizing the conditions and altering my riding style based of of that, I mean all the years of downhilling I've seen a lot of different terrain and being on a little bike you really have to make sure you know what you are doing because everything you do wrong is just maximized and you have less room for error so I thought 'well it's like a mud race, I'll just look forward and not pull front brake and kind of use my hips to slide around like snowboarding or skiing."
