USA Pro - Stage 4

by Ghedebrav   August 22, 2013  

Steamboat Springs to Beaver Creek has to be my favourite depart/arrive combo of the whole season so far.

Dunno about youse guys but I've not made any changes for today's stage in anticipation of the TT.

Well he can't have done too bad as he is up to 9th on GC and Euser up from 15th to 10th, so im guessing they came in 13th-20th somewhere.

So you defo have a full house.
