What a fun weekend! This will be light on text because I have another blog to post about our social ride last night and I'm busy packing to go to Park City for the E12 hour this weekend. The highlights:
Marni kicks butt in her first race ever beating guys and girls up the hill climb. And she even said "That wasn't terrible, I might do it again"
Erik finishing 3rd in the hill climb and 1st in the XC race in Beginner 25-29!!!
Chris finishing 3rd in the hill climb and 4th with a flat tire in the XC in Expert 19-24. Who knew?
Scott kicking ass and catching people on descents.
Danh for doing an awesome job and having two *sweet* bikes.
Good food, fun and a kickass place to stay at Michelle's grandparents. Sleeping in a real bed between races is like being royalty!
The Element seriously rocks. 3 bikes (2 19.5"), 3 people, gear and still plenty of room for everyone to sit. All inside the car.
Marni's delicous chocolate chip cookies and Michelle's dad's great dinner on Saturday night.
Here's some pictures:

Overall Winter Park was awesome. Two great races. Lots of friends. A couple suprise podiums. What more could you ask for?
