Long rd held Shannon Morrow Sports Editor sports@plurnasnews.corn Considering nobody knew the longboard races were going to be held until two days before the event, orga- nizers did a terrific job of getting everything ready for last Sunday's world champi- onships, which were contin- gent upon the weather. The race course was groomed, the deck was shoveled, the water was running and the food was hot, thanks to a coordinated effort by the Plumas Ski Club and several other peo- ple who helped prepare everything for a fun day at the Johnsville Ski Hill. With 30 racers and a crowd of spectators, turnout for the event was good. The weather was snowy at times, but seemed to en- hance the 20tb annual cele- bration of the longboard re- vival race series. After four rounds of head- to-head racing in single- elimination brackets, Rob Russell beat out a field of 24 men to win this year's championship. Ryan Mur- ray took second place and Eric McGrath finished third. Of the six women racers, Dana Ludington won first place, followed by Jessica Nelson in second and Kath- leen Murray in third.
