    I didn't race, due to mechanicals and fear! I took some of the pictures and the youtube video.

    Newspaper article talks about the 14 year old that won, beating out some local pros!

    Lots more pics here, but be warned - the total size of images on the page is about 53MB, so it will take some time to load.

    Sweet pics! Our snow ds race yesterday had nothing but gates, and that only happened because Team Elevate got to drilling and putting them up (Gore Mountain is very slack...). More on the Gore DS race tomorrow!

    we have a super fun night DH race here in the southeast. Fontana Icycle....

    the course is more like a superD run..nothing too burly but you practice during the day and the trail is usually a mix of mud/snow but when it gets dark the trails freezes over hard and it's like ice skating through the trees at night :D sooo much fun. then there's a party with chili and a local brewery taps the kegs :thumb:
