I just got back from the event recently. It was great! Thanks to Tom Mason for putting on a great event! Too bad it was the final year though. Here are some pictures of me at the event. I promise I will add the race report and more photos on a later update! Other news in this update: Team rider Korny is no longer in the United States. After the events of September 11, 2001, the Immigration and Naturalization Service has imposed stricter regulations for international students to enter or re-enter the US. As such, I would like to express … Continue reading
