The Colorado Freeride Festival Air Downhill not only tested riders ability to charge a flowy, berm-filled world-class jump trail today, it also tested their ability to race in wet conditions.
Rainmaker definitely lived up to its name for the downhill racers as rain, hail and snow hit the Trestle Bike Park early in the day. By 3pm, the storm had cleared and riders were getting ready to charge the downhill race course. Here's a few fun posts found on the interweb today while everyone was waiting for t he storm to pass.
In the Pro Men's category, Brian Buell and his brother Michael, from Team Geronimo finished 1st @ 3:28:43 & 3rd @ 3:34:29. Tom Doran had a solid 2nd place finish coming in at 3:30:65.
Jacqueline Thomas finished at the top of the Pro Women's class with a time of 3:50:99, followed by Laura Heitzman, who finished at 4:16:40.
