At Donner, Webb handled the huge granite walls and drops with precision, topping three-time and defending Champ Patrick Smage by 26 points on Saturday and 38 on Sunday.
The U.S. Trial des Nations men’s team of Cody Webb, Will Ibsen, Keith Wineland and Pat Smage finished 5th this past weekend in Darfo Boario Terme, Italy. This is the best finish ever for a U.S. team since we joined the ‘A’ class in 2006.
The women’s team of Caroline Allen and Sarah Duke finished 8th. Louise Forsley was unable to compete for reasons that are not yet clear.
