Mulally wins dual slalom

Eagan best and only woman

The weekend began with the Gravity East e.thirteen Dual Slalom and the Lars Tribus "How (not) to Snap the Start" clinic. The dual slalom track at Whiteface is out of character for the venue as it's about the only part of Whiteface mountain that can be described as smaller than average, making the start even more critical.

In his second heat, Tribus (Chumba/Rockshox) anticipated the start, but guessed wrong. Snapping into the still-closed start gate, he went over his handlebars right at the gate. Tribus was able to come back and, having already demonstrated how to take out the front end of one's bike on the start, showed how to take out the back end in the final for third and fourth against Kyle Sangers (J & J). As the gate dropped, Tribus snapped so hard that he snapped his cog into pieces, costing him the race but putting him in serious contention for the unofficial "Hulk-Out" of the year.

In the pro final, Pennsylvania's Neko Mulally (Specialized Team America) bested US ProGRT competitor Logan James (Pedal the Peak-e.thirteen) from Utah.

Karen Eagan (Sam Adams) was the only entrant and also the winner in the women's category.
