SOL VISTA, COLORADOMinnaar and I took the pro wins and tons of cash at the Triple DHip event in Colorado this weekend!!! Kind of an undercover race, as the dates changed last minute, but glad I decided to go!! They ran an awesome event, getting the town involved, and crazy good prizes; full sram group sets for all amateur classes, and best pro prize purse in the USA- 25k all up.
Not a bad day for Minnaar taking home $7600 for the men's win, 2nd-Mick hannah 5k, Neethling $2700, all the way back to 12th for the boys. For the ladies, we had a small turnout, and not as much scrill, but 2k is not a bad prize purse to take home, I'm stoked.
Think over the three days and 3 tracks I did 30 runs! Which is a shitload. People did even more than that I'm sure. Luckily the lift moves quick and the runs are like 3 min, so not too bad, but it was a solid effort of riding for one weekend.
Trails were a lot of fun and challenging , which is pretty good for a bike park. Natural terrain, not too blown out, good rock gardens, nice flow, jumps, etc. Chainless was my favorite race though!! It's not really a surprise minnaar won that stage, he is really smooth and big, carries good speed. Lots to be said for this kind of training.
