Thanks to all who showed up to race and help out with Sunday's Kash For Klunking Super D race!
It was great to see some new faces as well as much of last years podium winners. The racing action was hot and heavy all afternoon... but there's nothing you can do about the weather.
We were disappointed to have only one female competitor again this year...but at least it was a different female than last year. Jen Whitedog had two quick runs which would have had her placing in the Men's Beginer category. LADIES: we just end up throwing the rest of the prize money in the trash, so please come out and claim your share in the future.
In the Men's Beginner class, Luke Schuttenhelm royally brought by destroying his bike in the first round, stealing a bike out of the pits, and besting his previous time and the rest of the competition. The podium was rounded out by two other loyal HPT volunteers, Dave Lawrence and Robbie Young.
The jockeying and battling continued in the Men's Open class with epic warfare between local spandex clad hammerheads and baggy pants out-of-towners. Returning dominant champion Eric Pueschner, Kevin Weivada, and Thor Shellum ran times within a quarter minute all day, but it was a nail biter's ball as the finish times were calculated and they all finished within 5 seconds. When it was all said and done, and the trail (and hike out) had taken it's toll on everyone, Thor ended up with the big envelope of cash followed by Eric and Kevin respectively. Kevin is also able to pay some additional bills with the $50 he brought home for posting the fastest time of any BEER racer (Eric doesn't count).
Check out some race footage posted up by Corey on YouTube: Thanks Corey.
If you watch close you'll see our top three fastest riders all off their bikes. Thor pushed up hills and Eric and Kevin ran down rocks...just kinda funny.
Thanks again to all racers, fans, and volunteers.
