Jamis / Garmin rider Kenny Burt used his former downhill racing experience and XC fitness to finish 6th over all at NMBS #2 Super D event in Southern California over the weekend. Kenny rode a Jamis XCR Pro in the Super D as well as the Pro Menís XC race where he finished in 41st place, following another Jamis / Garmin rider Dave Yakaitis . There was a large field for the PRO men XC and this in Kennyís first year as a Pro. The temperature was in the high 90ís all day and the course was without much tree cover.
The week before in Northern California, Dave Yakaitis dominated the Napa Valley Classic Pro XC event, beating many fast NorCal Proís.
Alan Obey finished 19th overall in the Pro menís XC field following his 10th the day before in the Short track event. Alan was in the fight of it in the Short track event until team tactics came into effect. Alan is using the early season races to ramp up and is planning to Peak for the National Championships at the end of July in Vermont.
