Fluidride Cup DH/DS #1




The fluidride cup came on strong with a turn out of around 300 smiling racers signing up despite the mud packed start to practice friday. This was quite a display for a regional race thanks to the combined efforts of Fluidride and Hurricane Racing as well as the help from our very own ODS. We all dried up in time to see the Dual Slalom races on Saturday where there was plenty of enthusiasm from the crowd as well as the high spirits of the racers. The northwest has not seen a DS coarse in quite awhile so it was a thrill to have it come back and take us by a storm. The rain held off long enough to get in the Downhill race run where Luke Strobel and Katrina Strand took the top spot for the Pros on the podium. What an exciting event now don't forget about the rest of the series with the next race in Mt. Hood May 10th and 11th. We will see you there !
