What a whirl wind. We’ve been racing Duryea as a team now for three seasons. It’s usually the first race, and one of the gnarliest. Jumps, fast, loose, gaps. Did I mention jumps? It’s a tough race to start out on considering most of us are off the big bike for the winter.

Man did it rain. Dallas called it and it came down. We huddled under the team tent for hours. Watched a few guys go up and do some rain runs. We didn’t even get to track walk yet. Rain let up around 11am. Shack and I headed up for a walk. Picture of Shack from the lift says it all. It was dank, wet, and zero sun.
My third World Cup at Windham and my third time racing the citizens course. By far, this one was the best one yet. We got to Windham and set up our camp up in Ashland. Joe cooked some chili and some corn bread in his Dutch oven over open coals. It was amazing grub.
Windham World Cup was amazing this year. Great friends to share the experience with and the whole nine. Citizens’ race was off the hook. More on that later. For now, let’s focus on the world pros. We got some great shots and saw a pretty sick story unfolded with the winners and podiums.
