We’re finally here — it’s the final countdown! After a absolutely nut-crazy, nail-biting day of 5* cross country Saturday, we’re entering the final day of LRK3DE with so much on the line. Will Tamie bring us a long-awaited female US rider win for the West Coast? After the longest cross country run time we’ve seen in a while, we’re sure to see quite a few tuckered ponies contesting the colored sticks this afternoon. Stay tuned for what is sure to be a legendary performance!
