Jingle Cross Day 2

Overnight snow completely changed the course conditions and it was a wet, cold, snowy, muddy day. Reverse direction meant a slippery and fast descent down Mt. Krumpit. A pretty frustrating day for most of the riders but still lots of fun in the tough conditions. We've had some pretty mild weather in Wisconsin most of the season so we were good and due for some snow and mud. With Nationals in Kansas City only two weeks away we might as well get some practice! There are some great pictures and video floating around on the web of the racing action. Thanks to Amy D for taking all of these great shots and letting us post them here! Always a fun race weekend and an excellent venue - thanks to all of the promoters, sponsors, officials, racers, and crazy superfans. The fans lining the hill were awesome. Thanks also to Planet Bike, Ridley, Lazer, and Edge for all of the support!
