Cycle Solutons DH#4 Race Report presented by Commencal

News Race Coverage

So what would happen….. would we finally make it through a weekend of DH racing without rain? With Blue Mtn’s slick clay base it would turn into ice storm like conditions, so finger were crossed!! The rain gods held off and we had our 2nd largest race in the history of the sport!! Best of all we raised $623 for the Stephen Lewis Foundations (Aids in Africa) and PlanetAir (World highest quality carbon credits).

The race run proved to be more demanding that most thought, as there were plenty of broken parts and dirty jerseys at the end of race day.
