Slammin Salmon Butler Race 2010

Well, it was unfortunate timing that the road wasn't open yet, but the turnout was excellent and good-times were had by all to make this the premiere Northern Cali Spring event!
Here's my listing of photos: If I don't know you're name, post a comment and gimme some shit!

Here's Alex Wolfgram edging out Chris Hatton for 2nd.
