Saturday was a hot day, but that did not stop NMSU mountain bikers from putting on a strong showing at the Horny Toad Hustle. In the Cat 2s, Lucas took second and Ryan just missed the podium at fourth. In the Cat 3s, Gorden and Sten took 1st and 2nd respectively.
It was awesome to see so many racers out for NMSU, and look forward to folks continuing in the future.
This weekend the collegiate mountain bike season kicks off with the Horny Toad Hustle. This race is NMSU’s home race, and several racers have shown up to compete, including several new riders. Stay tuned for pics and results.
