This past weekend some of the worlds fastest down hill racers made their way up the coast from the sea otter classic to the second round of the NW Cup at Port Angeles WA.It was pretty surreal to be at the local series and see 30 or so of the worlds best racers in line for practice.
I grabbed a couple pictures with my phone while walking the track.
Brooke the Bulldog with Trek World Racing leads out Luke Strobel with Evil Bikes.
The man the myth the legend, Cedric fully healed up and ripping again. He was running his new DVO suspension, trying to get things dialed in before World Cup season starts.
Steve Smith and Nick Beer with their new Devinci Wilson Carbon team bikes.
Freeride badass and super nice guy "the Claw" showed up to race, and surprised some guys with a very respectable time.
Portland local and super nice guy Charlie Sponsel back from hand surgery and happy to be back on his DH bike.
he looked like one of the faster guys down the infamous "CHUNDERDOME" section of the track but a crash near the end ruined his chances.
Young gun Neko Mullaly looked super fast and focused.
Andrew Neethling was a blur on track.
