The first race of the year went awesome! I ended up winning 20 of the 22 races I was in. The sleds were both running great, and I had a nice line figured out on the track. MSRA and Mt. Itasca put on a great show. The racing went really smoothly; you would never guess it was their first time having a race. The entire MSRA crew did an awesome job and I look forward to racing with them in the future. Mt. Itasca also has a great set-up for racing. You can watch the race from inside the chalet, or with how nice the weather was, everyone was out on their huge deck in front of the chalet. Their manager and groomer operator Jeff also did an awesome job with the track, he was always ready to go and touch up the finish line and fix any holes or problems with the track. It’s things like that that made this weekend run so smoothly. I couldn’t have asked for much more this weekend, the weather was gorgeous and the racing went amazingly well.
