Domnarski is a mix of technical climbing, fast rocky double track, some fun twisty singletrack, and a couple of interesting wet spots*. It's a well-run race, and the Domnarskis are more than welcoming, with a bike wash and pond to swim in afterward open to all. It's also one of the only races to reward racers with straight-up cash. Despite three flats, one superman, and some impromptu tree encounters, the CEC team ended the day with twelve top-five finishes.
*'Floating skinnies, short rock bridges, and puddles you couldn't necessarily see the bottom of this time around post-rain. Spicy!

New team members Tina and Brett Severson brought big smiles and killer legs. Tina took 1st in the women's Cat 2 19-34 category, and Brett was 5th of 43 men in Cat 2 30-39. Welcome, guys!
Jen was poised for a 3rd place finish in Cat 2 ladies when she got rad airing out around the Tree of Death, and flatted. Never a quitter, she fixed it up, and finished just one spot behind in 4th. Badass.
