Bob Casper was almost as dominant in the Over-60 Experts as Kevin Barda was in the Over-50 Experts. Casper went 1-1-2-1—losing one moto to Chuck Sun. Photo: Dan Alamangos

Chuck Sun got flat tires in two of the four Over-60 Expert motos—limping home to fourth place in both. He ended the weekend in second overall. Nice bike Chuck, where did you get it? Photo: Debbi Tamietti
