    It looks like WTB's Trailboss which is my favorite rear tire, does great in the moon dust at Summit and doesnt have the drag like a full on Minion.

    I had given up hope that anyone would put down a competitive time, but the final riders were so exciting to watch. They were on the limit. Maybe the best race this season Men and Women.

    Left the track/broke the tape and was disqualified. So the last Cup race will determine the winner of the overall, just like 2016 all over again.

    Even though I'm not a fan of wet muddy courses, that was an exciting race!

    I didn't get to see the race today and couldn't help myself from looking at the results sheet. Holy sheet! What a race. Some unusual names way up there. Dean Lucas in 2nd (Intense) Jack Moir in 8th (Intense - but he's been up there steadily), Eliot Jackson, Bruce Klein, Charlie Harrison - and some older names - Gee Atherton, Beaumont... Even Logan Binggeli finally made a decent showing at a World Cup (the only other man to win U.S. Nationals in the Aaron Gwin era). And what about the women?!!

    I now regret that I don't get to experience the "Holy Sh## are you kidding me?" moment when some of the racers came down then the "What-just-happened..." moment when the winner came down. Wow!

    I didn't have a chance to watch any of it until last night. That was insane! I watched most of the "important" runs on the computer, but had to throw Gwin's up on the big screen. And I had to make the wife and kids watch, too. I don't care if they aren't bikers. :p

    Having glanced through the replay, I now understand why there are some unusual names towards the top. Rain again separated the field, but this time, not as catastrophically as it did at Lourdes.

    Gotta go ride now.
