This was the most riders ever shuttled in the F250 and trailer. In this photo two riders and their bikes have already gotten off! Probably 17 people and 16 bikes. Big thanks to Randy Robison of Black Rock Bicycles for taking on all riders! Thanks to all the shuttle drivers who volunteered to take us up the mountain! Photo Gary.

    Thanks for the pictures. Check the times for Randy and Steve…..
    Less than 1/2 a second apart. I think they ride together, maybe even same lines and same bike. Adam still won with no practice run. We need to fill davids bike with sand to slow him done. Good job dave, sean, joe,randy,adam,l and the rest of DH RENO. Jerseys look good

    These photos are awesome, Gary, steve and nancy. Excellent job to all of the racers. I am impressed with these times. It is very cool to see all of the dhreno jerseys. This sucks typing with one hand.
