The inaugural edition of BWR Cedar City, Utah, was held this past weekend, Saturday, October 17. Running such a large and well-attended event during this time of Covid-19 (hopefully, one we can all look back upon in the future, FU Covid!), is a risky proposition, but we understand appropriate safety protocols were taken by the promoter. Whether the riders followed them during the race is another matter, but the focus of this article is Ian Matteson’s wonderful photography…

      1. Somehow I did Crusher in the Tushar on Canti’s and flew on the descents… Avid Shorty Ultimate, excellent Canti brakes. IMHO Mini V’s have too much power and not enough rim clearance.
