Hunter and his never quit attitude rode into 3rd place in the new XC3 class. It was a fabulous birthday present as he turned 20 on Friday.

"I had a lot of fun as always. I'm getting in better shape thanks to the ice cream man, Stu Baylor. It's a step in the right direction; still lots to learn but with this being my first podium, I'm enjoying it!" ~ Hunter Neuwirth XC3 Pro

Scott Grills Best Finish 

Scott had his best finish of the year taking 10th in the highly competitve XC1 pro class. A fun fact about Pro Scott Grills is that he works a full time job Monday - Friday. That is tough stuff!

Battles to 3rd in 200B

Brandon battled from back in 7th position to his 3rd place finish. A bad crash a couple hundred feet from the finish almost had him losing his podium position but the newly-turned 17 yr. old recovered and saved it.
