Man what a fun weekend. We turned out in force. Nine riders total. Clear skies and super-fast track. Parking lot camping like champs. So much progression for everyone on the team. Big stories from this race; Amy & Mike Render, and Bobby the Berminator.

Gotta start this post out with a ton of fam pics. Never had we ever had so many of our family come out to see us race and learn more about MTB. It was awesome. Demtra my mother-in-law, and Paulette my step-mom-in-law, stood there and watched the entire world cup race from the front of the gates right behind the hot seat. It was really cool to see.
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.
