Cherry Creek Utah Sugarloafers Nationals

May 25th, 2011

The sugarloafers again put on another epic desert national race out at Cherry Creek. After raining for a week straight the clouds lifted and the sun came out for what the racers are saying was a perfect day for racing. The Pros had a good line up and you will see in my video how many bikes were in the line up as they come flying through the hole shot. I got the amature start but there was a big pile up at the start so we took off and got some footage of a water crossing and then drove pit row to see all the rigs. We then took off with some friends and my boy to go check out some of the terrain these riders have to go through. It was two 45 mile loops. I am a big Destry Abbott fan and he was able to pull off a third place with Kendall Norman coming in second and Kurt Casselli getting first. Overall it was a great day for riding and I can’t wait for the next one. If you have never watched a desert race put it on your list of things to do. Thanks sugarloafers for putting on another awesome desert race. This is from Destry Abbott’s web site. “The club did a great job on the course and you really couldn’t have asked for better weather. It was definitely one of the best races of the year! Racing in Utah is always one of my favorite places to go. The people are always so nice and supportive.” www.destryabbott.com
