The All Gravity Series Round 3 put on by Wheel Sport East wrapped up last weekend with Diamondback's Kyle Thomas taking his second win of the Eastern Washington DH Race Series. There are four more races left in the series and if you live anywhere close to the Pacific North West, make it over for some classic DH racing and good times with the locals.
Schweitzer Mt., Idaho used to be home of one of the NORBA Nationals Races back in the day. Respectable racers still talk about how gnarly the Schweitzer course is to this day.
Start of the course is a kamikaze down the ridge line into the DH track.
A heavy night of lighting storms left the morning with dense fog on the upper mountain. The sun popped out around noon and left everyone with a beautiful day up on Schweitzer.
Steve Bafus rallys down the kamikaze ridge that leads into the start gate. A course generally stacked with moon dust, rain from the night prior left the course in perfect conditions.
Kyle Thomas rides into his second win in the All Gravity Series.
Who wouldn't want to race against these two?
