It started with a 100+ riders and a 40 min bus ride up to Bogus Basin. A small ski resort 5000ft above downtown Boise ID. At least I got my first test ride of a course before the race, but 15 miles at eye watering, dust storm speeds didn't allow me to memorize any of the course. I finished 2nd in the experts and 4th overall. Every rider chose there own bike style. Mostly cross country or light weight downhill. When the dust cleared the cross country riders ( hard tails) prevailed. The award ceremony was held at the bicycle park which contains a bmx skate park, mountain bike terrain park and a velodrome under construction. It was held in conjunction with " Trailapolluzza", a festival to raise money for the velodrome. The weekend was unbelievable.
