Grand Finale Weekend
Capitol Forest Washington, Sept. 6 & 7 2008

That's a wrap!!

Another great season of FOCF mtb racing wraps up in Capitol Forest. After 6 consecutive rainy events starting in the spring of '07 we were rain free!! With
perfect weather, great camping and trails that were absolutely buffed thanks to the hardworking FOCF volunteers we couldn't have asked for a better season
closing weekend.

Now that's a cross country race! With a figure 8 route, lots of climbing and plenty of incredible descending and NO ROADS OR DOUBLE TRACK, FOCF and
Capitol Forest are putting the Cross Country back in NW XC racing. One time local boy Erik Atwood of BRI Racing took the XC overall in the Mens Open class
and local FOCF girl Heidi Grantham took the XC overall in the Women's Open class.
."That is the best XC race course I've ever raced on" -anonymous mens open class racer  

Top to bottom! The GL6 SD course in its entirety. In the Mens Open class Fluid Ride brought the heat this weekend with local FOCF ripper Matt Jagger
defending the home turf with a second in the Mens Open class. Nathan Riddle from Fluid Ride made the trek up from Oregon to take the day and overall series
Mens Open class wins. Joy Mutoli of Mutoli Racing stepped up in the Womens Open class for the series overall.  
"That is as fast as that course gets!!"  -super stoked local
