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 “rad dude” shows up always after the beer is revealed.
The DDHD had a jump line built that was sponsored by Gravity and here is Skye Schillhammer sending it over the second set.
We had a whiskey on the course
Right after whiskey, the trails get ridden.
Frisbee golfers were on the course with the same beer as me.
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.
This is what it looks like when you win both days.
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.by
