The downhill race season is back at Beacon in Spokane, WA again for 2013! Double Down Hoe Down 5 will be the same format as all previous years with a single run race, and two seperate days of racing. Both days will count individually in overall series points. Two tracks and two epic days of racing and camping. Spread the word! This will be the final Double Down Hoe Down, and the last year of racing at Beacon Hill. A new landowner has taken ownership of the top of the hill and it sounds like we will be losing all trails above Girthmore. Lushcinema will be out to document the end of downhill mountain bike racing at Beacon Hill, so please help us make this a year to remember! Ride My Domain is filming a documentary about Beacon Hill as we speak and will be released this spring so stay tuned for that too.

 Why you gotta bring me down, man? I was sooo bummed to hear the news earlier this week. I began racing there w/ the round and round/WIM series events many, many years ago. Wish I could make it out for the races that weekend, but I can't get the time off this soon! Frown

 End of an era. Sad to hear.

 No Doubt! I wonder if we could still race on a new trail from down lower?

 And have a 1:00 course?

 Well you would have to re-work it to have less fall line of course... But there are many races in the U.K. and US that have short track races. Just curious what all has been shut down....

 Nothin as been shut down. It will take a year or two before they start putting homes up top.

 Yeah true but it will be eventually unless they can show the developer the value of having good trails in your backyard. I found a map that showed the closures.
