In Moscow, Idaho, this weekend, warmth was a distant friend and we had a taste of just about everything from sun to clouds, rain to shine and grapple to a wee bit of snow! But none of that had the least bit of effect on the third annual Moscow Arms Race. The final stop in the six race All Gravity Series
, Moscow brought out some of the Northwest’s most dedicated and talented racers to wrap up a season to remember.

Birth of the All Gravity Series
Josh Tofsrud and Chris Andreasen started the series three years ago to provide a scene that was lacking in the area. “We just wanted to put together a well-timed and well organized series” ,says Tofsrud. The series stretches from Eastern Washington to Northern Idaho and they even put on a race in Whitefish, Montana, this year. With sponsors Shimano
, and Phar North
securely on board, Tofsrud is looking to potentially expand in the coming years and an Enduro event is certainly not out of the question. But as far as this weekend was concerned, DH was the scene.
