A short but heavy rain came down just before the finals began, making for slick conditions in the amateur finals. The course would dry up quickly though, and by the time the pros went off, making for ideal condition.
The pro dual slalom events were the features of the day, and Neko Mulally (Trek World Racing) and Melissa Buhl were the ones to ride into Stars-and-Stripes jerseys.
In the big final, Mulally beat out Blake Carney to take the gold medal while Brian Buell (Team Geronimo) bested Cody Kelley in the bronze medal round.
"It means a lot. Dual Slalom is kind of like an American heritage. This is our thing and to be the national champion is really special,” Mulally said after his win. “I rode consistent runs every time and I think that's what won the title for me.”
In the women’s race, Buhl outraced silver medalist Katie Holden in the final and Jacqueline Harmony picked up the bronze after winning against Katelyn Parhiala in the small final.
"It's always a good title to win,” Buhl said. “I love the area. I love the people. The energy here is amazing. The people who put on the races did a good job with the course and a lot of work went into it, so 'well done' for those guys."
