After the first 3 races in Port Angeles, the North West Cup moves to Mt. Hood Ski bowl which is definitely one of the gnarliest tracks in the circuit. Filled with sharp rocks, white knuckle speeds, and an absolutely gorgeous view of Mt. Hood. This year, it rained on the first day of practice, was beautiful on Saturday, and in true NW fashion rained just before the race runs went down! As a matter of fact this same thing happened last year at round 1 of the Ski Bowl race.
Here is a great video showcases the course, the gnar-factor, and of course the amazing riders the NWCup brings out! Gravity’s favorite MC and all around nice guy Mike Estes has some choice in the upper section of the course at 0:40.
