And we're off! The lifts started spinning under a week ago and we already have the first race of the season under our belts. If you were here for opening weekend, you know that the conditions were nothing short of fantastic. A little bit of rain this week has kept things tacky and the weather god's gifted us some prime conditions for last night. In classic Phat Wednesday style, we kicked the season off with a bomber of a course down B-Line. Lets get into it, shall we?

But if you're Yoann Barelli, no bike is out of the question.
Two thumbs up from the little man.
B-Line is fun no matter what ability level you're at.
