A relatively quiet weekend of racing. Eric Oftedahl hit up the Woolly race coming in 4th and Casey Hildenbrandt dropped in one of the Wisconsin Endurance events and placed 7th out of 44 riders. The team will be represented well at the PRO XCT race in WI this coming weekend. Good luck to all riders racing!!

Fantastic showing by team members in ND, MN and WI this past. The "western team" was racing in North Dakota and placed 4th among the 10 hour teams. Casey Hildenbrandt won the JR Open in WORS. Read the recaps in the Midwest MTB report on

Lars Ellefson rolled in from Durango and joined the dozen or so team members at the muddy Mon Du Lac for race #3 in the Minnesota series, posting a solid 5th place finish. Nice job! Read his race recap here. Check out the coverage on skinnyski. A pure mud fest. Good times!! Hope the bikes cleaned up well. Yikes!

A mostly quite Memorial weekend on the racing front. One of our newest riders, Casey Hildenbrandt of Wausau, WI was racing WORS in his hometown and filed a report on the race:

"The race on sunday... stayed with the insane lead out for the start. Fourth wheel into the singletrack. After the first lap, I was third, leading the group from third to seventh. Some road tactics came in as a team was playing games with the rest of us. Two team extreme guys, two expo, and myself. The extreme guys went, I covered, then fell off. Got passed by Nate Labecki, expo, and couldn't keep up. Lack of legs, (which are starting to come onto form i believe)... then I got a gap on Caleb, but about 2 miles into the third and final lap, Caleb caught me, and I only stayed with him for a mile. Then I dropped off, and started to cramp. The heat and lack of riding due to school got to me. With school done, I am ready to ride!"
Racing on tap this weekend at Afton Alps. Congratulations to the Elite Team in the MNMB Series Competition for first place at Salem Hills!!
