This weekend was the final Mountain States Race of the season for gravity events. The downhill course was rough, dusty, had HUGE jumps, and was a ton of fun. I won my Cat1 DH race for the old fart 40+ age group. This also gave me second for the championship since I didn't do any of the 4x races which are included for points. Chris Boice won the Pro race which also gave him the title for the season . My son Ben beat my time for the second time this season by just a fraction of a second . Josh Wilcox of Los Alamos won his second ever 4x race for Cat3 Jr. Everyone else from Los Alamos and New Mexico had good times in all their events. Here are some pics from the weekend:
The "Lip Skidder": 40'+ jump that took out one kid really bad over the weekend. Most weren't hitting it but Ben & I liked it because it was built really smooth and all you needed was good speed to clear it.
Start of DH course:
First Step Down Jump (saved a big go-around)

Josh Wilcox of Los Alamos on the second step down. This one didn't save much time but was a very fun jump:
