CDC #4 Capitol Forest

When your bike ends up hanging in a tree...it was a solid wreck.

October 2nd brought the Cascadia Dirt Cup to the north side of Capitol Forest. This time the weather gods smiled on the CDC with some early week rain, that left some amazing dirt throughout the trails (and some grease in other spots). As always the Friends of Capitol Forest built some amazing trails that handle the PNW and led to plenty of stories around the pits of having a blast racing these trails. At the end of the day, John Richardson put 32+ seconds into the Pro Men's field, while Ingrid Larouche won by just .14s over 23mins of racing.
