Caveman at last weekend- Double Down Hoe Down DH race

It’s Friday and I am just finally getting into the groove from the last weekend. It all begain last friday when I had a vital mountain bike photog Cory Tepper stay with me to do some media coverage for the Double Down Hoe Down race. So with Cory at Cave Mt. and myself for entertaining my guest the best I can, we seemed to keep the weekend rolling fast and fun with a tid bit of beer to wash it all back with.

So here is what went down-

The beer was revealed.

The DDHD had a jump line built that was sponsored by Gravity and here is Skye Schillhammer sending it over the second set.

Paris Gore showed up to get some coverage for Pink Bike and do naughty things when no one is looking.

Frisbee golfers were on the course with the same beer as me.

they are hard to like when they have their course next the the mtb trails.

The Saturdays course was a fun flowy jumper style DH course. It’s impressive to see the women hot on the men’s heels when it comes to pushing it through the terrain.

Flannel seems to be winning these days on the race course for keeping it casual.

After Saturdays race, the jump jam began. Joe Perrizo “Joe Danger” came in hot in high with his dump 3′s- so sick and so damn beautiful.

Team Robot showed up to announce the event and it looks like it showed up also to dry hump it (well at least part of it).

Sunday’s course is the nasty one and personally my favorite day to watch. One of my first shots of the day was Michelle Benson dropping Girthmore line- any woman that drops that line is a baller.

I asked Ed if he could spare a beer and he was already finished with his six pack before the race even started.

The last line on Sundays course for the Cat 1′s and Pros was hands down the best place to be standing on the course- you either made it or died pretty much. Bobby Stenson dropped the line so damn smooth.

Bobby Stenson is so damn goofy. He's a must to get to know.

This is what it looks like when you win both days.

Lars Sternberg, fast as fuck and the winner of the DDHD.

Thanks to Josh Tofsrud and John Henry, they make the DDHD awesome every year. There is a rumor that the race might be ending due to a housing development being put in at the top of Beacon Hill. Hopefully it’s just a rumor and we will see more of these races- thanks Josh and John.

Josh and John at the end of the weekend.

  1. Dude, Im soooo stoked you got a shot of me going off Girthmore, thats all I wanted!

  2. @Michelle

    If I tried something like that I’d break both my balls and probably my neck also.

    Outstanding !!!!!!!!

  3. Happy Fucking Easter you peckers.

    It’s going to be mid 50s today here in NJ and my sorry fat ass is going for a ride for the first time in months.

    Wish me luck but 10 bucks says I get to the end of my long ass driveway and say fuck it and turn around and have a couple-20 beers instead.

    And…..never did find out why judi was forced out but it appears she’s living the dream. https://www.facebook.com/pages/SPUN-Bicycles/260531734070037

  4. triple-t- at least you made an attempt to get out and ride. I haven’t ridden nor can I til I replace some parts some bitch Sandy destroyed some 5 months ago. Btw, I’m in nJ and outta shape at this point you wanna ride hit me up

  5. I too rode my bike on Easter— over to my mom’s house, where we celebrated my birthday. The world would be a better place if more people rode their bikes to their mom’s house for dinner.

  6. @TTT— Hells yeah. Had a couple of cans of Bud with the lads on the sunny deck at my ski condo, drove down the hill and had a couple of Ninkasi Total Domination IPAs, and my mom stocks the Henry Weinhard’s, plus my wife brought a bottle of French sparkling white wine. Hit a rock and damn nearly ate shit riding home through the woods in the dark. It’s all good. Rubber side down, brothers and sisters.

    Jesus. I thought I was a fucking drunk.

    You and your wife are spot on.
