Britcher in singles and US relay team both 7th on final day

US doubles third overall, West 5th in World Cup standings
OBERHOF, Germany – Put the dominant luge nation on one of their home tracks, combine it with an Oberhof course where few teams have extensive experience, and the outcome can sometimes be predictable.
In all of my years of hiking I can think of only two shirts I’ve purchased specifically for my time on the trails. Both were long-sleeved hooded shirts purchased for sun protection (I am a bald guy, after all). When hiking in hot weather, I’ve always worn free shirts collected from various running races. This is because I am, ahem, thrifty, and figured it didn’t really matter what shirt I was hiking in because it would just get sweaty and stinky anyway.

Working in conjunction with neighboring fat bike party starters MTBVT (you may know them from events such as Winterbike and Überwintern) the Highland event will be based largely on the MTBVT format with organized group rides, a demo loop, but with an H-land twist… DH laps, and a DH fat bike race!
|Just returned from a winter (Dec/Jan) raft trip down the Colorado River thru the Grand Canyon. Stocked up on Minus 33 gear in preparation for this adventure. Trip was wet and cold as expected, and my experience was awesome. Your gear performed very well. I was particularly impressed w/ my expedition weight base layers – Katmai bottoms and Kobuk top. Wore these every day under my dry suit on the River and stayed comfortable w/out being too warm. Great quality – standing up to daily rugged use for our 19 day trip.
