Al Baltes
Even Al Baltes was back for the finals
The fall weather was perfect and the courses better than ever, but where did all those ladybugs come from? While the oh-too-friendly swarms where a big nuisance for the race timing crew, the riders seemed to thrive on Mickey's Mountain at the finals. The turnout was bigger, the dual slalom course was at its best, and the prizes were the phattest of the year. iPlayOutside's got the pictures for you, and we'll have the results (along with Sunday's highlights) as soon as possible.
