Racing started on Saturday with Kimmi's enduro stage race. Since it hasn't rained in months, the course was loose and Kimmi used every bit of her tires to dig in for traction in the decomposed granite and sand. After 5 stages, she was stoked to take 1st place.
Michelle, Kimmi, Erik, and Tim came into the XC race the following day feeling the heat and altitude, but were still excited to get on the shorter, faster course. All the climbing was over relatively early in each lap, which left rolling single track and a couple fire road sections to link it all together.
Erik and Tim both went on to take 3rd's in their classes, while the four of them all put points in the bank for the team overall competition.
