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.

The bike did WHAT?!

Unfortunate rider who launched his bike into the trees.

Mitchell Nuyens making shapes through the tight trails.

Dayne Hall with the save of the day off the drop.

Podium Medals from the rained out Yacolt Podium and waiting to see if you made Saturday's podium in the sun.

Ingrid Larouche squeaking out her .14s win.

John Richardson on his way to a 30s win.

When the dirt and berms are this good...you really can lay it deep into the berm.

Eyes on the prize.

The deep and dappled light in stage 2 was difficult, Sam Owens doesn't seem to mind.

Plotting the day, and getting the registrations dialed.

Ryan Roelofs loving the beautiful PNW dirt.

Keith Robert lining it up for 3rd in Pro Men.

Some days just don't go to plan.

Bentley Moore keeping it fast and low on his way to 4th in Sport 12-14.

Hope to see you all at the final race in Hood River! Full results can be found here.
