Melissa Buhl, Women's 2009 U.S. National Pro Downhill Champion. Melissa didn't hit all 3 of the big jumps, but she did get into the jumps she felt good on and made up the difference on the rest of the course. Because of input from herself and other riders during the rider meetings, Pro DH competitors and officials came to an agreement about adding go-arounds for each of the 3 downhill jumps. At the rider meetings, the DH competitors and officials also made decisions about the jumps and whether or not they would be closed if windy conditions existed on race day.
