XC Nats Sun Valley, ID - What a great weekend!

This might look like an easy uphill, it was not, it's a lot steeper than you think, just around the corner. Every stroke counts!
Dave has been the voice of mtb for a while now, I know we have ran into each other for over 12 years now.

The weather was perfect, the course was nothing but a gut buster! Many had strong statements about the climb "straight up and every stroke counted from the gun" climbing legs please!

Straight up a ski service road w/0 turns, sometimes hitting over 21% hurts. When you see the pros almost ready to hop off the bike and walk you know that's a hard dig.

So proud of so many just to do the race. It was great to catch up with the many faces who have used our services. We have been providing the WN'ing edge for a long time now. So it's great to see folks like Reba Rusch, Chopper, and many others.

I will point out that we top marks w/ people we have worked with. Starting out w/ Russel Thronstrom taking 1st Masters, Georgia Gould obtaining her #3 Nats XC, J, Bishop a 4th XC on Sat., then a 5th in Short Track. Amanda Carey, the NUE 100 mile queen getting 7th in XC, Alex Grant 8th XC.

Idaho is a great place and the event was just what it needed to showcase our hood.
