CDC Chuckanut Mountain 2014

Chuckanut Mountain and the Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition(WMBC) played host for the second year in a row to the Cascadia Dirt Cup Series Finale. Heavy rain and high winds battered the area the week leading up to the race day. However, the clouds parted and the sun came out the day before the race and as a testament to the awesome trail building skills of the WMBC, the race course was the tacky, hero dirt CDC racers have been accustomed to this year.

There was a lot of nervous excitement in the air before the race. Some hoped to hang on to their series overall lead while others wanted to end the series on a high note.

The best podium shot of the day. It's been an absolute blast watching these kids race over the summer. Juniors; 1st - Jason Eiswald; 2nd - Jimmy Schwend-Cloherty; 3rd - Layton Meyers; 4th - Mathew Seemann; 5th - Blake Rollins.

That's a wrap... It's been an amazing year and a huge thanks to all the volunteers, sponsors and racers who supported us in 2014. We donated grand total of $17,000 to the trails this year and we couldn't have done it without you. The CDC team is already working hard on 2015. You can expect a couple new venues and we're bringing back a classic. Look for the schedule release soon.

 Jason Eiswald as a junior had the 5th fastest time on stage 2 and was top 12 overall even with a flat on stage 1. His brother (Carson) won expert and was top ten overall.
