Too bad the attendance for Icecross today was not very good. Weather was fantastic and the course was unique, to say the least. Laps were in the 3:30 range! Technical like no other course I've ridden. The course started with a short straightaway followed by a banked, fast, off camber turn. A bit more fast trail connected to a small section of singletrack before the triple barriers. After winding through a few camp sites the course headed across the covered bridge into the skills park. The sand played havoc all day in that section but was a blast to ride. Too bad I threw myself on the ground on the last lap. During the fall I drilled my shin on my front TRP's so hard that I undid the straddle cable. Also, since I drove the bike into a hilly sand pile, my brake lever snapped off. Stoney might be a day on the 29'er or I might just ride the Singlecross...
Jason Loetz took the win. I slotted in 2nd, followed by Osgood and Seaman.
