The powers that be seem to believe Wednesday is the best day for weather around here, so this week's race is cancelled. We'll see you next week, and will likely use the course below. Benjamin Sharp (last week's winner of Men's B) and Dakota Cline (winner of Juniors), swing by the announcer's tent next week to grab your YellowBelly gift cards. See you all at next week's showdown!

Due to inclement weather, neither one of the pre-planned dual slalom races got off the ground this summer. Because of this, and the logistics to pull up a DS race in a week, we will NOT be hosting a dual slalom race this summer. We apologize for this, since we know there are many people who were looking forward to the races. If you paid for the first dual slalom race and left your fee with us to roll over to the second, please send an email to the short track email, and we'll figure out a way to get you a refund; you can also choose to roll the fee over to short track. Again, we apologize for this cancellation. Hopefully we'll see some of you at short track in the future!

Just a reminder that we will be hosting both a short track race AND a dual slalom bracket on July 16. Entry is $20/person for DS, or $30/person for both the DS and short track. Just as posted for the first DS race, kids will also have to pay the race entry fee. If you are racing both races, please sign up at both registration spots (short track at the usual place, DS by the podium). We will be running the adult bracket first and the juniors (14 and under) afterwards so adults racing short track can feasibly race both events. Please email the CU short track email with any questions.

Instead of going up Corkscrew like last week, racers get to descend it as originally intended by its makers. Make sure to note the altered start line out on the road, coming back towards the normal start line/parking lot. The rule for the week (and possibly more): there will be no lining up at the start line until the current category is called. Racers lined up in the grid too early get in the way of race business and fun! Plus, who wants to sit still on a bike for twenty minutes?
