EN reader Bill Olson kindly sent us a couple photos from Copper Meadows HT today.  Bill reports that riders are “enjoying  a gorgeous day in Ramona, CA. Even though it was the inaugural Advanced here at Copper, course designer James Atkinson didn’t mess around!  It was a big winding course on rolling terrain with some tough questions out there!  Fun event!

Zach Brandt had a great round on Cavallino Cocktail adding 6.8 time penalties to move up to 2nd place in the Advanced Division. Photo by Bill Olson.
