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!

Omaha Has a Devo!

Sounds like local MTB superstar and Devo board member lit a match under Omaha’s britches because now the Nebraskan town has a junior development team in the works called Omaha DEVO. So sweet to see the junior programs popping up all over the US. Thanks Travis. Read the interview here.
