Sweet Moment from the B race was when Jay Eagen made a move on Rich Larson with 2 laps to go, to move into 3rd place and the $10 prize.
Sweet Moment from the A race was when Sepp Kuss held off a late charge by Rotem Ishay and Frank Mapel on the last lap to win the $30 prize and DMR ski pass. That lap also saw Frank close a 16 second gap to Rotem to overtake him for 2nd place.
Thanks to Durango Coca-Cola for the sweet course, pump track and Mexican Coke beverages, Jay Eagen and his DMR crew for the spring course work and the new bridge and the ski pass prizes for the winners of each category , Annie Cheeney for her sweet DJing and registration help, Sarah Tescher for the registration and schlepping help and all the racers and parents who cheered on the racers and helped tear down the venue after the sweet racing action. It may have been small, but it was a ball!Read More

Trailwork is this Wednesday, June 8 at Horse Gulch.
We are re-routing Stacy’s to improve drainage, flow and contour. Originally, a game trail, the improvements will make for a more sustainable trail by reducing ruts from summer thunderstorms.
Please Join us!
From the intersection of College and Main, go east on College to 8th Avenue. Take a right and go south on 8th until you see 3rd Street on your right, and then take a left. Go east into a parking lot at the intersection of 3rd and 8th. A big wooden sign at the back of the parking lot shows a trailmap. This is where Horse Gulch Road begins.
Time: 4pm to 7:30pm
Wear closed toe shoes, long pants, shirt, hat, sunscreen and bring water.
