First night of Beer League was perfect weather. Not to hot, nice nappy trails from all the rain. The course was running nice with one sketchy spot at the bottom of the last decent that was rutted and derogated due to all the precipitation, but that offered another challenge to the many technical spots throughout the course.
Ca1 women included Caroline L and Jen B, Caroline pushed hard with the fastest dudes up front to yeild a strong finish.
Cat 1 men was as always a huge field with battles raging between many riders. Cat and mouse was again played with Toby M and Ben P, with Ben finishing strong with the win.
Many Cat 2 riders for men and women, and we were stoked to see so many new riders in Cat 3.
Only one jr rider braved the tough course from MT Alpha Women's team. At 17 years old, Allie continues to push her mental and physical skills on this tough course.

Our 3rd annual Skills Clinic was a huge success! This year we filled the trails with 100 riders for an awesome day of mountain biking with new skills learned and fun with new friendships.
This year we added a "Boys" group that filled up due to Sam Shultz, Owen G. and Keifer H providing some amazing coaching...!
Jr girls filled up with a new batch of "little alphas" and our older Jr girls moved up to intermediate status or helped coach.
Our instructors rocked beginner, intermediate and advanced groups of women.
Thanks to everyone that participated!
Special thanks to our sponsors for this event!
