August 14th brought the Race Cascadia crew to where it all started with enduro for them. The south slope trails of Capitol Forest Washington. This was no normal enduro this time, it was the site for the 2021 Summer Classic Team Enduro. 3 person teams, raced based on combined age and gender combinations in the heat and smoke of the PNW this summer. Cumulative time for all three racers brought in the final times, and all racers had to leave within a total of 40 seconds (20 seconds apart max). There was also a costume contest that the Sturdy Bitches race team handily won dressed up as a taco, a pussy cat, and a beaver...though Team Dad Bod put in a strong (although somewhat disturbing) showing. At the end of the day... honestly, I think most of us forgot who won, but everyone had a blast ripping the mountain either tight on each other's tails, trying to avoid the dust, or spread out, really feeling like a day riding with your friends.
Podiums were definitely a fun time.
Thanks again to everyone for making this a rad event! Results are here.
