The 8th stop of the Eastern States Cup New England downhill series was held at Sugarbush Resort in Warren Vermont. This was my second time to Sugarbush and it's bigger than I remembered. Multiple mountain peaks with chairlifts everywhere. The base area is very picturesque. ESC had both an enduro Saturday and downhill race on Sunday. We had a new transport set-up that worked incredibly well.

I live an hour away from Windham and it rained quite a bit overnight. No big deal, I can handle mud. What I can't handle is the heat and humidity like we have been having all week. I foolishly thought it's a morning race and its also always a little cooler at Windham. Well, I was 100% wrong and it was nasty, hot, and humid there and I also realized this "morning" race will finish in the afternoon. The good news was Cat 2's suffered so much doing 3 laps they dropped us Cat 1 folks from 5 to 4 laps.
