I went to Fontana for the first Winter Series race this past weekend. This is their 20th year putting on races in Fontana. I went to race rather than shoot since I've shot there so many times and wanted to place well. The course was far from technical, but was pretty fun because it flowed. After practicing the course non stop, I ended up shooting the end of practice for 45 minutes on Saturday.
I raced my stumpjumper (4" travel xc bike) since my downhill bike isn't ready. I felt really fast and heard I looked fast in my race, but my time didn't agree. I placed 14th in Expert 19-26 with a time of 2:22. Despite being apparently slow... my little bike felt just right on the course.
