This is probably the biggest race other than Sea Otter to hit US soil this season for DH. Underworld cup/ NW cup #2/ US grand Prix , a race with many names taking over for the Pro grt series- which is coming up short this year. World cup talent pool in attendance with Most all the big teams making the trip north from Sea Otter.
Bit of a mixed bag for us this weekend, as Bryn went down in practice, tweaked his knee a bit, and decided to sit this weekend's race out. I managed to win quali and finals, winning on 3 different bikes in 2 weekends. Woo. Go Norco's .
Crazy heckling out there today though. Hard to concentrate with all the noise and paraphernalia scattered across the track. Bet the foreigners appreciate a big fat American flag to the face. Gets slightly outta control, but you gotta love the enthusiasm, and custom chanting:)
