The Fall Classic - Series Champions in OUR House

The Pro Women's #1 plate resting in the Dale's Pale Ale/Spot Brand Bikes tent.

The Mountain States Cup Series threw down a classic event to wrap up one hell-of-a series. The Breckenridge Fall Classic has a real deal classic feel, 2 days of racing ending with a 28 mile epic loop. The endurance crew came out in big numbers & with a big thurst to support Maverick Sports reincarnation of the Fall Classic. The weekend went off with perfect weather, good racing and that unmistakeably energy of a series final. In addition to the great vibe & energy of a series final the Dale's Pale Ale/Spot Brand team had a little extra juice crowning 2 series overall champions. What a great season we had sharing great riding experiences with truely good people over the best family of canned beers on the planet. Thanks to all of you who came out to support love on two wheels.
Jennifer Smith doubled on the weekend with 2 major objectives on her calendar. An extra shout of good luck at Xterra National & World Championships to her & Brian.
Erin Huck of Tokyo Joes rides to a 4th place finish in the Fall Classic. She had a consistent season to finish 3rd in the pro womens series.

Good job to all great way to wrap up a season. One of my favorite races the fall classic. I like the shot of Tall T he makes Bakers Tank look small.
