This past Saturday was the Yacolt Burn Enduro, also know as the 1st stop of the Cascadia Dirt Cup (CDC) this season. It’s an enduro race series and you can get information on it at their website http://www.cascadiadirtcup.org/ The race went off without a hitch and Mother Nature even through in some nice early summer rain to spice things up for the racers and spectators alike. I decided to keep this post short and sweet and added a gallery with enough images to make up for the lack of words. Everyone had a great time and hopefully you enjoy the race images! Thanks to all the event sponsors and CCMTB for doing a great job with the trails!
Congrats to Alex McGuinnis for the win in Men’s Pro Class!

“Good morning racers, hope you are ready for this tour de mud!” said the SW Washington mountains
It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll
Wet foliage? Check!
Muddy MUDDY trails? CHECK!

First part of Stage 2 was tight, wet and windy through the woods
Scenery, thrills and a free mud bath! Seriously, what is not to love about this day??!
