Portland USGP's - Montanans Ride the Mud
Montana racers did not disappoint. Lisa Curry won both days of mudding in the women's B! Lisa did it in a field of 40 women both days on courses that are the opposite of Montana terrain. I love it. Congrats to Lisa who deserves these results. Bill Cochran had an excellent weekend. He finished 5th on Saturday and 3rd on Sunday. Great racing from one of the most consistent performers this season. His time in the northwest must have helped with the muddy conditions. John Fiore also had a good weekend with a 6th and 7th. John said that Cochran was on fire and the MT guys came to play. Also in those races was Steve Muller who placed 17th and 19th. The results don't stop there. Frykmaniac and Dowd added to Curry's dominance in the category with a 5th, 9th, 10th, and 11th. Great riding by the Delphine ladies! Oh no it doesn't stop there either! Don't forget about John Flurry Curry. He entered the single speed category which had 55 entrants both days. Curry finished 3rd and 2nd respectively. Just to shed a little light on the level of the single speed race, Ian Brown finished 5th behind Curry, and he finished 10th overall in the Cross Crusade Series just behind Vanilla's Molly Cameron (Men's Elite). Great racing MT riders! We'll look for reports and photos.
