Great job putting this together guys. Great wrte-up as well.

Nice racing also. Looked like you folks did a good job all around and were successful in getting some new people in the ranks and that is the key.

Good Luck on the next ones!!!!!
Many Happy Pumps!

Thanks everyone. Dr. D. your timer is the shizzle...not a hiccup on an 850 foot course!

I'm hoping to find B-class podium shots - the pics on the NESRA website are from my camera, taken by a spectator, and don't include any. Dave K., got any?

Thanks Terry - the tranny comes off and lies on a trailer, and the rest un-bolts and breaks down so it all goes flat on the trailer too.

It was a fun day of racing, great hill and awesome ramp(thanks Tom and Will). The race ran smooth and the guys up north are getting fast. Thanks to Rick and the Burlington Bomb Squad for making it happen. I am looking forward to the rest of the series. Any fence sitters out there, these are great races to come ride and see what slalom skating is all about.

Nope, I wasn't holding my still camera at that moment. I can get you screen captures that would probably work ok for the web, but too low res for print.

Something like this:

If you'd like more, I'll squeeze em out.

Maybe Ryan or one of the ladies was snapping pics then?

OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

The Antrim NESRA Race will be on Saturday, June 26. Rain date is Sunday. Disciplines will be SL and GS for sure, probably some sort of "enhanced" DH and a TS quickie as time allows.

More details to come, but the date is set - mark it on your calendars!
