Why, ProGRT and Southridge racing? Why?
These are the same race promoters that can put their heads together and conclude that Fontana makes a good National track, so I guess a backwards podium/inability to read left to right doesn't come as the biggest surprise.
For those less versed in the language of sarcasm and(or) mountain bike culture, that was a tried and true "Fontana sucks" joke. On mountain bike hate sites that's the equivalent of a layup.
By the way, in case you saw the above 2009 Bromont podium and got a little misty-eyed for the good old days, here's a link to the Sicklines article I stole the photo from and a link to the Dirt TV from the race:
Bryn was wearing a Navajo blanket, Mark Beaumeant was STILL on GT, Fabian had half a knee, Aaron Gwin's second podium, and Sam Hill was in the leader's jersey. The good old days. The video quality sucks but whaaaaa...
