A rare view from the Wall of 2nd place finisher Mike Colville. After racers make it to the top, they still have to get back down… this consists of a near vertical decent to the right of the initial climb. It’s a spot virtually hidden from the spectators, and it’s impressive to watch these machines tackle the decent like it was no obstacle at all. Mike finished with 9 total laps, looked absolutely unstoppable the entire time, and took the time penalty bypass only 2 times. He secured his 2nd place spot by a large margin, and finished the race having completed the Wall more times than any single racer on the field. Only the 2nd Ultra4 competition for Mike’s brand new Spider 9 powered IFS racer, it was exciting for all of us to see both driver and machine right at home in the Badlands terrain.
