Fontana Fun

By Judi Mumm

Dirt, yummy. Maybe that's not the best way to begin a race report, but it is DH after all.

V and I raced the Sport class DH at Fontana on Sunday. It was a nice course, rocky, ruts, and a bit technical. During the practice runs I had a few good looks at the ground - note to self, keep feet on the pedals when you're in the air.

V had great runs until race day. She bit it hard on the last practice run. She was forced into a bad line over a rocky section, her front wheel stuck between 2 rocks and sent her over the bars, smacked her head onto the rocks, then to add insult to injury the bike came over and hit her in the head again!

Did I mention that we love our body armor and full face helmets?

V had a clean run and got 1st and I came in 2nd. Velo Bella Swept the Podium!

But wait, that's out of 2 people racing - there's not very many of us 40+ gals out there doing DH. Which reminds me, come on out Bellas, do some DH! I started last year at 40, it's never too late, and really, it's fun. You get up close and personal with nature.

Next weekend is Bootleg Canyon - scary fun.
