This weekend will mark the conclusion of another amazing year of Downhill racing in the PNW. Stevens Pass Bike Park will play host again promising plenty of practice and a mixed bag for weather. It looks like anything could happen.
With seven rounds in the books, the overall season standings are down to the wire in most categories. More details at Roots & Rain
As you may have noticed at Round 5, Stevens Pass is a construction zone right now, so there are a few changes. Registration will be in an as of yet undetermined location (most likely the ticket windows used in the winter time). Also, the restaurant we typically enjoy will be closed and the Foggy Goggle will be open in it’s place. Just be prepared for a few changes.
Below is the schedule. Technically it’s Open Practice most of the time and the Saturday schedule is stating when the given categories track will be closed to the public and left to racers to get full run practice. To be clear, everyone can ride at all practice times, just stay off others tracks during their time.
