    Hey Griff:

    Thanks for all the updates and pictures we all appreciate it! Just looking at the Youth scores and wondering what happened to Colton Haaker, didnt see his name in the final results!

    Thanks, Steve… I appreciate your appreciation!

    I don’t know the story on Colton. He did finish the first loop, but I don’t know why he DNF’d. I’ll try to find out in the morning for you.

    Thanks for that Griff:

    My son and I were having a special watch on Colton because my son thought it was cool because the bike he is riding is the same one my son will ride at the youth Nationals in July!! Then when we saw him DNF we wondered what happened to him. You are doing a great job and making it just like being there for those of us who cannott attend!

    Steve, I asked Catherine Bedley this morning if she knew what happened to Colton. She said he had a tire problem on Saturday and was disqualified for being late.

    On Sunday, she heard that he had a carb or gas line problem and saw he and his minder pushing the bike back to the pits… but didn’t know the whole story.

    More tire problems on Sunday too for Colton. He popped his bead. If anyone’s ever ridden on a flat tire that’s popped it bead, you know what the ride is like.

    Poor kid had hard luck all weekend, but kept smiling. And his minder is a great kid too. He helped Colton at the EnduroCross.

    Griff, you did a absolutely magnificent job on this website. A world class job for a world class event.

    Thanks for the details on Colton, Craig… and for the complement, too.

    I think I have one more Smage-related blog entry to post, so stay tuned!
