The team took a road trip down to Ashland Oregon for race #4 of the series. Ashland is the only race in the series that is styled around a Super-D or top to bottom race format. The racers were timed fastest from the top to the bottom with three special stages and a bonus climbing stage that was not counted towards the final results.
In the Women’s pro-category, Kim Russell had a major mechanical but did take a stage win before her chain was destroyed forcing her to endure a chainless downhill mission to the finish.
In the Women’s expert category, Patty Lenz took 2nd, Nikki Hollatz took 3rd and Amanda Kohlwey was close behind in 5th place.
In the Women’s Sport category (35+), Heather Pola kept the points rolling with a 3rd place, and 17 year old future Dirty Harlot Hannah Bergemann took 3rd in her first ever enduro race in Sport (34 and under).
It was a beautiful weekend in Ashland, with continued awesome support from the Dirty Fingers crew.
