Fresh snow the night before a race created white-knuckle driving, and some highway closures if you were unlucky. A decision was made to modify the course to instead have 2 laps of the shorter Enduro course. I actually enjoyed this format as the skintracks improved greatly for the 2nd lap.
Nick Elson had a great race as he was able to stick with Philipp until the final climb when he blew a skin. I finished 6th. Some photos by Malcolm Taylor:
