Excitement filled the air at this year's annual USASA national qualifying bordercross, held on the lower Can-Am trail. Both days were bluebird and beautiful with spring-like conditions. The overall course build took us (Jay Peak Park Crew) about two weeks of shoveling and shaping, leading up to the event. The course challenged competitors top to bottom with a number of features, starting things off with a Wu-Tang spine that led into three tight banked turns. These turns spit racers out onto rollers that allowed them to boost their speed for the last two banked turns. The course finished off with a 30’ foot jump down into the finish line. After a few practice runs, racers competed in individual timed trials. The results of these timed trials sorted the racers into their heats for the afternoon. The course proved to be challenging, as temperatures climbed in the afternoon, but the softening snow and warm air didn't phase the racers, as they battled it out on their final runs in these qualifying matches. Winner’s podiums allowed competitors to celebrate the event and congragulate one another on a weekend well done. If you’d like to know more about USASA events and rankings, visit their webpage HERE.
