The Downieville Classic was held this past weekend JULY 10 – 12, 2009 in Downieville, CA. The Downieville Classic featured races in Cross Country and Downhill disciplines, with an overall All Mountain World Champion determined by combining results from the two. The event is so popular that spots to race sell out every year and are much coveted.
Below are the pro race results. Adam Craig and Katerina Nash were crowned the All Mountain World Champions. Noticeably absent this year, was local pro and multi time Downieville Classic winner Mark Weir. Mark had a pretty good reason for missing the race though, since he had his hands full with the recent birth of his first child. So, we still get to say, “Congrats Mark!”
Also shown are a couple of pix from the ever popular River Jump!
The men’s cross country was won by Adam Craig, with Sid Taberlay in second and Jason Moeschler in third. The women’s cross country was won by Katerina Nash, with Willow Koerber in second and Kelli Emmett in third.
