Today the rainy weather of yesterday was behind them, and Drew and Jim chose to represent the Utah High School Cycling League in all their sunshiney glory.
The format for today's race was an Enduro. This is a relatively new format for mountain bike races, and Drew and Jim's first experience with it. Exciting! Basically each climb section is not timed. You swipe your RF card at top and bottom of each enduro stage for timed scoring. There were 5 timed downhill sections today.

Here is the link to professional pictures from today's stage. Danger!
But the boys not only finished in one piece...
They did so well they moved up one place in the standings for male duo team! Who says us Utahns don't know how to ride rocks and roots?
In the end, the best part of the day was that they got to socialize with Dracula over a PBR.
|Jim with Dracula. This is the "Transylvania" Epic, no doubt.|
