A huge thank you to our volunteers, 78 racers, photographers (Erik Arcus and Tony Lathrop), timers (Marc and Corbin) and hecklers who came out to brave the elements last night for our first-ever Whatcom World Cup.   Our first racer dropped in at 6:10 and we were done by 7:30’ish in a gnarly rainstorm.

To call last night”wet” would be an understatement, but no one batted an eye and there were smiles all around.  In fact, it was so wet that Marc’s keyboard for his timing system got drenched and so we couldn’t determine the results last night.  Big props to Marc and Corbin from Pacific Multisport for fitting our series into their already busy schedule!

We elected to start the WWC series of with a couple of old favorites and both Mullet and Cheech delivered a fun course for our racers.  Hope to see folks next week…the course will be announced on Tuesday!
