When I saw this, I lit up and was very giddy about this event there where two classes Fatbikes and regular bikes. But of Course Fatbikes rule so I had to enter my Fatbike.
The Day had come after leaving are hotel, Grand Sierra Lodge in Reno, NV. We stopped for a quick breakfast and trucked up Mt Rose Highway to find the Dual Slalom. We pulled up to Sky Tavern to find a sign drive up farther to MT Rose parking lot. Then we found another sign, race with an arrow pointing right. It was snowing and the wind was blowing about 30+MPH.
We pulled into the parking lot.
