Another weekend of racing for the Team down in Southern California,
Peter Glassford had a good start to his race, unfortunately he suffered a flat on the back side of the course and couldn’t finish the race.
Karlee had a solid second MTB race, after a strong start she finished in 11th position.
Peter had to start out short track based on his finishing position from xc so he had a lot of work to do. Fighting hard from 31st, making lots of passes he managed to finish in 16th.
Karlee had a great race finishing in 3rd position. After a crash early in the race she fought hard to get on the podium.
“ A bit dissapointed I crashed to my mistake, but really happy with the outcome regardless and a 3rd place!” – Karlee
