Sunday September 28th, 2008 * Sky Taverrn Resort *  Mount Rose, Nevada

There was a huge turnout at the WCCC Mtb Opener last Sunday. Nevada Cycling did an awesome job hosting the event!

UNR racers won both of the top spots with former Collegiate DH National Champ Jon Wilson winning the men’s race and UNR racer Tennile Smith winning the women’s downhill.

Robyn Embry pulled this out and took a 2nd in women's A for SNC
