    Snowmass BME 19-39 amateur winner on a Mach 6

    This race was really competitive- a huge amateur class with over 100 riders. Stoked to see the winner was a nice guy named Taylor riding a mach 6 who ended up taking the win. Great weekend of racing.

    There were a lot of M6's in the video they posted of the event. I do have to say i was very disappointed by the pictures of the course. Did not look like anything challenging at all and the Pro class was won a 100 mm travel bike. So much for US courses getting more difficult.

    I think everyone is impressed that it was won on a 100mm bike but just because one guy did well on that bike does not mean it wasn't technical. The 4th stage had tons of berms drops and jumps. Stage 7 was gnarly with big drops, many nasty crashes there. Also the days were long with lots of miles pedaled. Stage 6 was a 7 mile decent, thats not easy at pace. It probably wasn't as rough as the Euro races but thats just more the American style, not necessarily a bad thing.
