Ryan turned 12 in January of 2016. He's in his 3rd season of racing DH and loves it. We travel to Whistler every summer and the Whistler riding combined with the racing has really allowed me to progress at a very rapid pace.. 2014 9/10 Junior National Champion - DH and 2015 11/12 Junior National Champion - DH

2017 Fontana KMC Winter Series, Round 3
Bummer there was no mention of the 14 under open/expert class. Usually we see coverage in the recap for the Southridge races. They're racing the expert/pro course and deserve the coverage

Angel Fire Bike Park Preps for the 27th Annual Chile Challenge, PRO GRT and PRO XCT Races
I think that would be awesome.. I certainly can't speak for anyone else and don't want to facilitate any "hate" as you mentioned it but I would be in favor of Cat 2 running the Cat 1 course.. the 14 under expert change made out here in SoCal in Fontana has been amazing.. the groms who were ready now are in the process getting a couple of solid years of experience on the Cat 1 /Pro course before they become old enough to move up to true 15 and older Junior Ex Cat 1 racers. You have my vote but let's see what others think.. thanks so much for responding to this thread

@mtbmaniatv: Ross that could be a factor, and there could be others. I think the biggest factor is that USAC really doesn't care about 2/3 and or groms.. nothing is of importance until it's Cat1 so I get it, but you could truly take some big strides in truly building out the sport if you not only make entry level courses accessible ie Cat 3 to bring in new blood, but allow those who are already entrenched in the sport a true path for progression to Cat 1 and beyond.. there needs to be middle ground. I know it's not apples to apples but Donny did an awesome thing in Southridge this year when he created the 14 under expert open class.. that promotes serious progression. You now have 12 year old kids (my son included) who are pounding the expert/pro course but they don't have to race in Junior Ex class and get killed by 16-18 yr olds.. gave us a whole new level of excitement for Fontana this season

@thebigheine: and I'm not just bagging on AF because we love going out there.. honestly Mammoth runs into same dilemma.. 2/3 get stuck running Follow Me forever. I'd love to see Cat 2 run off Bullet and use the ride arounds on a couple sketchy sections, and keep Cat 3 on Follow Me.. that would be progression. if you can't handle Bullet with a few bypasses then stay in Cat 3.. that would allow the groms who can handle it a great way to keep improving their skills and bridge the gap as they get closer to Cat 1 age

@thebigheine: I'd have to think about it.. I know 2 years ago when we ran Nationals there (my son is the one who races I just ride the park) they actually ran a killer course including that wood ramp roller down into the killer big rock garden.. we loved it, then last year they changed it up and eliminated that tech section all together, and now this year it's even more flowy and easier.. not sure the best or right solution, just thinking if PA could do it then maybe other venues could as well. Just makes it tough for Cat 2 groms to stay pumped on a race venue when they get stuck running easier and easier Cat 3 tracks..

We love Angel Fire and can't wait to get there for the race but it's a major bummer that that the Cat 2/Cat 3 courses can't be separated like Port Angeles. This year they are making the 2/3 layout even easier than last year.. it's great for true Cat 3 riders but it's a bummer for some of the better Cat 2 riders (juniors) who are still too young to move up to Cat 1.. would love to see some changes and some progression on this. Seems we're going backward and making things easier on the 2/3 front. To have 3 courses for the 3 classes doesn't seem like it would be too tough.. as I said PA pulls it off just fine
