September brought the NW Cup family out to always sunny Port Angeles for the final round of the 2021 NW Cup Series. Over 400 riders came out to the true spirit of the series with laps on Dry Hill, and all the possible conditions present. The weekend started with dry and dusty loose trails, some rain during Pro seeding on Saturday, and finished up with some of the most perfect PNW dirt for racing on Sunday. The perfect weather, great, riding, and always awesome atmosphere of Dry Hill made for the perfect end to the 2021 season for the Declan Ervin Memorial race.
Family is what makes the NW Cup so special.
The NW Cup honored three of the top team leaders that show up to every race, developing new riders, and overall sharing all the stoke that is DH and helping the future of our sport.
Kat Sweet with Sweetlines Racing
West Coast Racing always bring the cheers and the party to the trailside!
Galbraith Gravity Racing is the new kid on the block, but holy cow do they bring one of the largest teams to every race.
Celebrating Declan Ervin's life at this event each year is such a great honor. Declan was not only an amazing athlete, he was a respectful, humble young man that truly let his actions speak louder than words. His character and progression through the craft of mountain biking was truly inspiring.
The recipients each year of the Declan Ervin Memorial Award possess the character traits and progression that the young star showed us in his short time with us. This year's recipients are Etan Brevard and Julia Lofqvist Traum.
