September 18th brought the Race Cascadia crew down to Yacolt burn for the 3rd round of the 2021 Race Cascadia, Cascadia Dirt Cup. 248 riders braved the predicted inch of rain in the area and most ended the day in a partly cloudy day....before the lightning cut awards short. Luckily the people of the PNW are a hardy sort, and a little rain didn't mean you couldn't have an absolute blast out on the trails. That and the trail builders hard work meant for a great day of racing, and at the end of the day, Ingrid Larouche and Andrew Cavaye took home the pro wins.
It was soaking, but that doesn't mean it wasn't an absolute blast out there! Kids in mud puddles.
Some just got muddy, some almost lost their shorts.
Who is ready for some rain?
Drivetrains took a beating out there.
A huge thank you has to go out to the staff at EVO who have been providing neutral support at all of the CDCs.
Unfortunately late a day rainstorm with lightning put an end to any chance for podiums.
Thanks to everyone that came out to play in the mud with us! Can't wait to see you all at Capitol Forest on October 2nd.
