Double Down Hoe Down 6 (Day 2) - Hub A Palooza 2014

by Eric Ashley  
Back in it's sixth incarnation, as part of the Hub-A-Palooza weekend, the Double Down Hoe Down massed over a hundred riders to compete in two days of downhill racing. Each day offered a different course, both taking off from the top of Camp Sekani just outside of Spokane, WA.

Sunday's race followed the more traditional route down the DH Course with plenty of jump, drops, and rock features. Spectators gathered around the action spots on the course; Girthmore a large drop from a granite boulder, and Jetson, a craggy rock line leading into the finish. The heckling prowess was brought up a step by the arrival of Dick's Famous Hard Salami cheering and jeering riders onwards.

This event was organized by Josh Tofsurd of All Gravity Series who was joined this year by The Bike Hub.
