Stradalli on the Last Day of Races

Sept 1

Today's race was insane. Insane doesn't even begin to describe it. Out of the 202 racers registered, only 94 or so actually showed up due to the horrible weather from the few previous days. It was 5.5 degrees Celsius and reports forecasted rain and even snow in some areas. Of those racers who showed only 24 crossed the finish line.  

Right out of the gate, the race headed straight for the mountains. Right into 7-12 percent gradient climbs. Full throttle and then a little more. 80kph descents, splits, breaks, crashes, and ambulances. The boys are ok, but that's all we know right now. More details and photos to come
