x-post from Ridemonkey:

Me and Caitlin hung out near the bottom of switchback hell during the pro Mens and Womens DH finals, and I got some pics. I got all of the Pro Men, most of the Pro Women. If you'd like to see a pro racer I haven't posted, ask and include a number plate/bike and I'll see if I have it. They're all pretty crappy, thanks to my lack of sports shooting knowledge, and use of a compact camera (I don't have a high enough ISO), but life goes on.

If you're intuitive, you'll notice these are in order by numberplate...scroll through the crap, maybe you'll find what you need.

Switchback fun. By today the course was hammered into ruts, holes, and moondust:


Needles (not EC as I'd said before...memory lapse)

Hannah maybe yes? I don't follow racing closely...


One of the Canfields (Chris, I believe)

Just thought it was a cool shot...ish.

Pete Shaffer


Sanjay...about to huck the gnar-gnar gap

Karl Rogne

The end...

cool! thanks for all the pics!!

looks like the fox 40 is the way to go for DH racing. seems like most of the forks were fox 40's or boxxers.
Little Camera takes Big Pics

Dude, those turned out pretty well! Got Sam or Sabrina?

Yeah, but both turned out like ****.

I need a dSLR. :(

You didn't happen to see Pete post race, did you? Wanted to ask him to see how he'd done...

I am not sure... is he the guy we saw testing the new Judge when we were up at DV on the Fourth? If so, he dumped it HARD coming into the top of the switchbacks and did a sweet headstand in the trees. He was okay, but waited for the next rider to go by before hopping back on.

I walked the section after the race and it was completely different from the last time I checked it out. The rooty drop used to have a bit of a lip, but now it is two feet further back and completely eroded into dust... sick. Wear a ventilation mask next time, eh?

Yeah, that's him, from Guthrie's. That sucks that he wrecked. We'll have to hit it on Saturday and see if it's any better.
