Sundays finals was a bit sloppy due to heavy rain from the night before. However a clear day kept the course just about right..

Charlie went down hard today but still made it to the bottom in one piece.

Seems like 70% of the racers had nasty diggers or experienced a mechanical, toughest track in the NW, Mt Hood Ski Bowl
