as opposed to ?

i think she raced some bmx before... not sure if you are trying to hate on it or something, but it is cool to see some one young and new to the sport doing well

'hate on'??

Just thought it was funny you called that thing a 'downhill race'....nothing more.

I never said anything about it not being cool that a nobody 16yr old girl beat a fairly popular canuck and a long time chilean/swiss rider. Christ, you people love reading into things here on RM.

NICE! So great to see Antonio still destroying it. That guy has been one of the most underrated South American riders for years, and he's a super cool guy, too.

What was the first place prize?


i´m almost sure that was like 650000 chilean pesos (like 1.350 dollars..americans)

Ditto. I remember when he used to hang around here... it's been a while.

Towing the party line.
Tens of thousands of bits of broken glass are but one of the hazzards on an urban Dh course in Valpo...



Gatto was the first girl to send it off the upper drop. The rest all passed on their first runs. She didn't.
