Just wondering. I didn't get to race it this year - family event.

Yeah. In one word: sketchy. Crashes in almost all the races.

I'm sure crashes came at the final 200m, downhill finish... same as last year.

Believe it or not, the problems this year weren't those guys sprinting for 40th. There was just some seriously poor bike handling. In the 4/5 35- race, there was a wreck in the first .5 miles! The 4/5 35+ race had a wreck on a slight uphill. The 4's had people trying to avoid puddles! Like I said, sketchy.
