The final stop of the COBRA Series was held at Gateway Green, Portland's only Mountain Bike Park. Racers lined up to battle one last time on a course filled with berms, single track, and an epic wall ride finish.
You've successfully held a bandit race on Mt Tabor, so whats next? How do you top that? Words from Dustin Klein come to mind "try fail, try fail, try fail." Mt Tabor was a really hard course and left a lot of racers absolutely gutted. The goal with Cobra's sophomore release was to pick a venue that would be more fun, less elevation and more spectator friendly.
Creston Park is a 14-acre piece of land just off of Powell Blvd which ended up being the perfect venue. The course was littered with trees which made taping of the course much easier and the street's traffic drowned out the noise of the race.
Let's do this!
DIY or DIE.
The calm before the storm.
Smiles for miles.
44 racers lined up Friday night. 3,2,1, go!
The ladies go hard!
Jump the shark!!!
Huge thanks to everyone that came out and to all of the sponsors that have stepped up to support DIY racing in Portland, Oregon.
