Made the trek up to Port Angeles, WA from down in Vancouver, WA with my son and a few of our buddies for another weekend full of pacific Northwest racing action. Here are some of the images I snapped over the weekend. Conditions were great all weekend and everyone had a blast breaking in the new race course for the Cat 2 racers. Congrats to winners from every class from Pro to Cat 3! Such a good time to see all the pros out shredding and all the future pro's out there tearing it up. So stoked to see so much growth in our sport as of late!
