Great job to all Planet Bike team members on a successful and fun nationals. One stars and stripes jersey and 4 additional podium finishes was a nice way to cap off the season. Racers and support members came together to help each other throughout the weekend and good times were had both on and off the bike. Thanks to mechanic David Kohli for all of his tireless work on keeping the bikes ready and organizing us and all of our stuff! Thanks to all of the sponsors including Planet Bike, Ridley, Edge, and Lazer for the support this season.

And now an attempt at a chronological photo blog of the weekends event (more photos to be added throughout the week!)
