Time to shift gears and head down to Skibowl for a proper DH test. Petr and the awesome crew down at Skibowl have everything ship-shape for a weekend of shredding in the shadow of Mt. Hood.
Pre-reg closes on Wednesday night, so save yourself $5 and a few minutes of paperwork by pre-registering now @ www.ccnbikes.com. The crew at Skibowl has changed Friday practice to 2pm to 6pm to give you time to sneak out of work early for a bit of track time.
Here’s a bit more low-down and the pre-rie vids. HERE
Most importantly, thanks to all the sponsors of the NW Cup, please thank them by supporting them as well. Also, slap Casey Northern in the face for me, because I can’t be there until Round 5 and he needs a slap to keep grounded.
Well that was quite a week. Mountain beavers, beautiful weather, insane hecklers, and some of the best riders in the world, made the second round of the NW Cup (aka Underworld Cup) one to remember. I have to admit, I was a little star struck.
As you all know, we had a TON of racers this weekend which made for some long lines so I want to say thank you to everyone for your patience especially Saturday morning. Fortunately we shouldn’t have the same problem at round three, although, I’m hearing of a few of the factory teams that are planning on coming back for that one as well.
Anyhow, this series has really turned into a spectacle, and it’s because of all of you, so pat yourself on the back.
We hope you had as good a time as we did. Interesting weather, great turnout, NO MAJOR INJURIES, and got our first shot at timing under our belts. While the system was so dialed in many ways, and accurate, sorry we couldn’t hot seat the whole time or display instant results. It worked Saturday during testing, and then crapped out. Should be dialed by next time.
Thanks again to all our volunteers, staff and sponsors that help make it happen.
While experiencing downtown Leavenworth, Washington and the outdoor playground of our beautiful mountain valley, visit our tasting room to enjoy Icicle Brewing Company’s refreshing brews.
Our tasting room overlooks our craft brewery where our head brewer, Dean Priebe has masterfully combined the pristine waters of the Icicle River with only the freshest ingredients to craft fresh and flavorful ales and lagers for your enjoyment

A big shout out to all the sponsors of the NW Cup. Over the next little while, we will be taking a minute to thank our sponsors individually. Please take a minute to see what they mean to NW racing and LIKE them on Facebook.
First off, a huge thanks to Diamondback Bicycles. They do so much for the local riding community, some of which you probably won’t even hear about. They’ve put together an ever growing line of high end bikes that have brought them back to the lore they held when I was a kid (and that was a long time ago). Big thanks!!

Trails that is… We have been chipping away at the existing trails and maybe a little bit of new ones. We are about half way through a new Cat2/3 line, and about to start pimping out the Cat 1 zones. If you are interested in trading a little work for riding, drop an email to nwcup@yahoo and we’ll see if we can work it out.
Let’s get this started already!!!
The preliminary dates are up for the 2013 NW Cup!!! Check it.
We’re starting to get amped about the 2013 NW Cup! Year 6 will be here before you know it, and we’re in the process of sorting out dates as we speak.
We are looking at adding not only another round, but potentially a little warm-up race.
Trail enhancements are well under way, with plenty more to do. If you are interested in helping out, shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you all before you know it!!
Big thanks to our sponsors to help us make a SICK batch of prizes for the Poker Run on Saturday.
Diamondback, Contour, Northwest Riders, Red Lion & Lib Tech!!
