The weather was miserable. 39deg and light drizzle up to the start, then it started raining pretty good. The course was dry for 1 lap, but turned turned to slick mud.
14 juniors started 1 minute behind the large masters 45+ field. Keegan Swenson, whole athlete/Specialized, took the hole shot, and they rolled up on the back of the masters field less than half a lap in. Jordan Cullen, Clif Bar Devo, was delayed in the starting stretch when Michael Dessau, ACR, chopped him into the barriers. Early in the race, it was Keegan in the lead, with Logan Owen, Redline, and Zane Godby, Clif Bar Devo, 5 seconds back, and Jordan another 10secs back, Spencer Downing, Clif Bar Devo, was just behind Jordan.
Owen and Godby joined Keegan by the end of the 1st lap as they battled through the masters field. Jordan was struggling a bit with skipping gears. With 3 of 5 laps complete, the front 3 had passed the entire masters field, and Logan went on the attack.
Owen's attack left Godby and Keegan chasing together, as Jordan switched to his backup bike. Cypress Gorry and Skyler Taylor both passed Downing on the 4th lap. On the final lap, Owen pushed home to take the win, as Godby dropped a tiring Keegan. After another bike change, Jordan mounted a couragous last lap comeback, but couldn't reach the tiring Keegan. Gorry finished 5th, and Downing outsprinted Skyler for 6th.
