Race started off like many days here in the Philippines; hot and sunny. The riders were getting some fast dry runs in and everybody was hyped.

Practice runs and repechage was under way and for the first half the day but unfortunately the sun didn't stick around too long. The rain started coming down pretty hard soaking the entire course. It almost looked like things would dry up but it began raining again and racing had to commence on a wet course.

A little bit of rain didn't kill the stoke though.

The race ended around 5:30pm and everybody quickly dispersed back to the campsite to dry off their gear, get some grub, and get ready for the podium.

Big thanks to the volunteers and parents that made sure all the racers were fed throughout the event. They barbecued a big pig the last day. It was just what we troops needed.

Congratulations to the champions:

Open Podium
Womens Podium
Juniors Podium
Masters Podium
Luge Podium
