Jason's Race Report - Day 1

The new World Cup course here at Angel Fire was a bit of a surprise for many who are used to rocks and more rocks. The preview video Chris Boice posted had many of rough bits getting smoothed out. Today was the first day of racing, and the fast course proved to be just as challenging as ever as racers hauled the mail at double the speeds some of these sections had seen previously. I spectated the entire course as cat 2 and cat 3 racers struggled through some of the new and classic sections. It was a great vibe on the course, especially for the women in the old bridge area. Every one cheered, no one fell, and the dust never settled between riders. The course became dustier the closer you made it to the finish line, and we are all hoping for the expected %20 chance of precipitation to grow overnight.

With the days’ awards wrapping up around noon, attention shifted to cat1/pro practice and non-pro dual slalom. The hill side has seen many changes over the years, from 4X track to the current DS track. For anyone who was lucky enough to see last year’s race, the course has been changed from the middle down, removing the tight chicane that separated out the inexperienced riders last time around. Instead, we are treated to a steep decline into hard berms that send you shooting out into that old staple, breakaway gates. Amateur times were tight, with most riders landing on the 30 second mark. Tomorrow (Saturday) will be more practice time for cat 1 and pro riders,while cat 2/3 only has DS finals before them. I expect the DS course to be  a complete dust bowl by that time.

Most people I talked to today were pleased with all the work Angel Fire had done, but were less than impressed with the show USAC was throwing. Some things never change.

Jason's Race Report - Day 2

Tough to update from here in Angel Fire with everyone strangling the internet, but I should be uploading gallery on Monday. Saturday dual slalom results are above, but the results are only the end of the story. With such a short track, times between heats were tight, and most races ended with the crowd holding their breath to hear who would advance to the next round. The amateur heats progressed fairly quickly considering the reasonable attendance. The dust and wind picked up during the finals, but on a course without any giant jumps, the wind was not really a factor.

just saw the final standings I think, its cool to see both Neko M and Mitch R soo close in time. They are completely different athletes but are both promising younger riders for the USA, maybe we will see them battle it out together on the big stage one of these days!
