8/7-8/8/2010 was the third race of the Diablo Domination series and what a weekend it was!
Saturday kicked off Giant Slalom with a 2 person battle for 1st in the Pro Class. George Ryan setting the time to beat. Memmelaar came down only .26 behind GR but unfortunately couldn't make up that time in the 2nd heat. GR taking Gold with Memmelaar going home with silver.
The Downhill track on saturday was not liked by many people, if any at all. The track was super dry and loose due to lack of mother nature (rain). There was lots of rocks and trees on the track, riders really had to pick and choose their lines and dial them in for Sundays final. I personally found myself having a hard time getting up to race pace on the track since it was so dry and loose, but I put that behind me sunday morning and came out with a new mind set. Found new lines and had to dial them in quick before my race run. Felt pretty confident going into the final so I kept those new lines!
Second rider down Diablo's rocky race course was your man... Jason Memmelaar setting the bar high with a 2:16 and change... wow! Jason had a good run but didnt think it would hold for very long, Diablo's very own George Ryan came thru with a 2:18, Jason is sitting a bit more comfy now on his SDG hot seat! Not to far after was Dennis Yuroshek with a 2:25 a solid run putting him in 7th overall. Alex Moschitti laid down a 2:26 sending him into 9th for the race. Overall Jason took 2nd in Slalom and 1st in DH putting him 1st overall in DH and 2nd in the combined overall. Yuroshek sitting in a hott 5th overall at the moment.
Big thanks to all our sponsors couldnt do it without you guys!!
Hate to say this but Chris "big higgs" Higgerson will no longer be with the Giant/HBG Team for the remainder of the season, due to breaking agreed contract.
