Boulder Short Track Finals
Boulder Short Track is over for 2007 - I was sad to see the series end (especially since I wasn't able to race with my bum shoulder) but the finals were great fun to watch, and the Waltworks/Fuentesdesign team threw down big time. Fuentes (shown on his Waltworks 29er w/custom Actiontec suspension fork) duked it out with Sager and Mike West for the entire race before finally ending up 2nd (and 6th overall). Nice work Fuentes!
In the women's A race, Sarah had a terrible start (back around 12th) but passed a bunch of girls to move up to 6th by the finish - her best race of the year at the short track. She also ended up 4th overall for the series and took home a cool $50!
Team Tuffgirls Sonya Looney was right ahead of Sarah in the final race (5th) and in the overall (3rd). Nice work Sonya!
Nick broke his chain, but still finished strong and took 8th overall.
Even resident pro roadie Rolf showed up to represent the Fuentesdesign colors. He had a solid finish and beat plenty of guys, in his only mountain bike ride of the year so far!
