2018 Portland Short Track Finale

2018 Portland Short Track Finale

The 2018 Portland Short Track is a wrap! I had a blast shooting and racing the past couple of months. Huge shout out to everyone involved, all the volunteers, and all the friends that make this race so fun to attend. 

I shot a ton of photos and there are definitely some gems in here! Enjoy.

Yesterday was another scorcher at the Portland International Raceway but Short Track kept the good times rolling. Seven races in the books with just one more to go. Monday's will never be the same again!

Bandit MTB racing at Gateway Green? What? Say what? Someone should do it! 

The End of Portland Short Track

One thing I learned at this years Short Track is that I have a funner time on the sidelines than I do on the race course. Now if there was a pro line..........

Regardless of my love and hate relationship with racing, the Portland Short Track series is a blast. Shout out to everyone that makes it happen and will see you again next year. 

Lots of good ones in this gallery. 

The people above make Short Track happen.

Syncline For the Very First Time

Syncline For the Very First Time

It wasn't long ago that I was being shuttled off to Washington to ride some of my first trails in the Pacific Northwest. I love that feeling of not knowing what your getting into. Staring out the window you dream about what the trail will be like, will you be able to hang with the group, are you getting in over your head, and did I bring the right gear with me. I love that feeling. I wonder what was going through Craig's head as we drove down the 84 towards Hood River. Craig secured a demo for the day and this would his second time riding some real trails. It's early. He's probably still thinking of a warm bed or a hot cup of coffee.
