The Rolex Three Day International event was super. I worked in the vendor arena for Helite Air Bag Vests all of Thursday and Friday. More on that later.
Saturday was overcast but calm and (conversly) filled with energy.
The crowd was amazing. Parking lots filled early. When I arrived at the Lake Head (jumps 19 and 20) the audience was waiting for Phillip Dutton. He arrived at top speed and didn't dissappoint the crowd at all. Most riders passed the two combinations without issues. There was a near miss (pictured) and two falls entering the water at 20A. Only one rider, that I recall, used the option.
I have about 20 more photos to load but it's a busy week and that may take time. Check back often!
Many thanks to the hundreds of people who shared thoughts and memories.
