Amateur Women. Jerusha Millar (TEAM MUDDBUNNIES): 2nd place, Aja Phelps: 1st place and Jenny Pederson (not shown): 3rd place.

Amateur and pro women racing the Jim Bean Air DH had the opportunity to session the course (A-line) until race start at 1:30pm. The amateur girls went first and there were almost 40 girls out there bombing down the course. Our own Team Muddbunnies member, Jerusha Millar had her run dialed and finished with a time of 5:18:69 resulting in a 2nd place finish overall! And North Vancouver local Aja Philps was 2 seconds faster with a time of 5:15:56 putting her in first place. Jen Peterson cam in 3rd with a time of 5:21:73.

4:30 rolled around and the Pro women were up. 3rd place went to Fionn Griffiths (our newest addition to the 2008 Muddbunnies Calendar), 2nd place to our the island girl and National Champ, Macayla Gatto. And I don’t know what they’re putting in the water over in Malvern, UK (I think it’s called “superstar success water”) but Tracey Moseley is drinkin’ it up. She took the 1st place win with a time of 4:50:95.

Tomorrow we will be riding our bikes and trying to snap some shots of all those hot female bikers out there. We’ll also be trying to snag a picture or two of Stephanie Nychka who will be the only female competing in the Kokanee Slopestyle against over 100 guys!

Then on Friday we’ll be covering the Telus Dual Slalom and Trialsworx. Saturday is the Kokanee Slopestyle competition and Sunday is the Canadian Open Downhill. STAY TUNED!
