Snowshoe Race #2 DH Results

SNOWSHOE, WV ( - What set out to be a great weekend of riding with perfect weather turned wet in true Snowshoe fashion on Sunday as the race progressed. Attendance was down for Race #2 of the Snowshoe series due to conflicts with other races on the east coast that drew racers away. Snowshoe trail crew had cut in some new features for Race #2; however, due to it being new construction and fresh dirt the features were not well received by the riders.

As the amateur classes were coming out of the starting gate dark grey clouds and haze approached on at the base of the mountain. Before all the amateurs were done, steady constant rain was falling. As the elite classes were lining up full drenching storms rolled into turn the course into a mix of slim and peanut butter. Race order was in reverse order of points standings so the top points holders in the younger amateur classes and the elite classes got the worst conditions of their entire class as the course became more and more wet as the rain drenched the ground.
