Round 2 of the Fluidride Cup Technical DH Series is just around the corner. Petr and the crew at Hurricane Racing are hard at work clearing the snow from the top of the track, and dialing in the woods sections at the bottom of the course. We are using a new practice schedule so be sure to read the following closely in order to be there at the right time.
Friday: 11am-4pm All Categories
Saturday: 8am-12pm Cat 2/3 - 2pm-6pm Cat 1/Pro
Sunday: One hour of practice prior to racing. Times to be posted at event.

Racers will be required to purchase lift passes after registering. All passes will be purchased at the ticket window. We will no longer issue tickets at registration. All racers must have a lift pass in order to practice – Lift passes are not included in the registration price. Big thanks go out to Kirk at Ski Bowl for the special lift pricing.
Mt Hood is a big track, with more than 1400 vertical feet of drop. The tracks at Ski Bowl start at the tree line with lots of rock, and descend into some great NW style woods at the bottom. Pro Purses in the Men’s DH will go ten deep, with the winner taking away $500.00. The Loeka Women’s DH will pay 3 deep, with the fastest woman taking home $250.00. As usual, we’ll have prizes for category winners, and lots of drinks and snacks to keep riders charging. The series is decided by the rider with the most points in their best three races, including the final at Mt Hood, so if this is your first Fluidride Cup of the year, you are still in contention for the overall series. See you there!
