The Sylvan Island race in Moline, IL was yesterday. Unlike last year the trail conditions were nearly perfect. There was lots of tough competition at this race because it was combined with the Iowa series=lots of very fast and very skilled riders! Aaron took 12th, I took 8th. Both raced cat 1. We both had great races. I could not have ridden any faster or better--29er was awesome!! I think Aaron feels the same although was not happy with his tire choice in the relatively dry conditions.
