As racers filed in throughout the week and into the weekend a plume of dust filled the sky. Unlike last year, we were not blessed with a tacky track, instead it was dry and loose. Dag's DH was constantly changing with a few big holes, moto ruts and overall just getting rough. It was starting to look like any modern day course. By the end of the weekend you would be hard pressed to find a clean face, but behind the dust you could always see those pearly whites shining through. A good time was had by all and the Kovarik Duo came out on top.

Big thanks to the volunteers, racers, parents, race organizers, Silver Star and all others involved to make this happen. Next year is already in the plans and it can only get better!

OK, it's all over now. It's time to start thinking about the next race or trip. Keep riding!
