Pro Grt #1 / NW Cup #2 – Dry Hill

Port Angeles, WA

05/13 – 05/15/16

 

Team Hi-5 Bikes had an amazing weekend attending the most recent NW Cup stop #2 in Port Angeles, Wa. From Friday being a dry, dusty day at Dry Hill; to weather throwing a curveball mid day Sunday making qualifying for the pro’s a bit slimy. To all out perfect riding conditions on Sunday, making racing tight for all classes.

He had a few mistakes in qualifying that would sit him out of this round of the NW Cup. However he was glad to make it out to visit old friends, and have some great times on the course at Dry Hill. He is looking forward to getting more time on the bike while studying hard. nwc2_raceday-215 nwc2_raceday-211Cat 1 Men’s 19-29 rider Rye Livingston pulling into 8th out of 46 riders with a time of 2:56:89nwc2_raceday-319Cat 1 Men’s 30-39 rider Jesse Murdock stepped into 11th out of 21 riders with a time of 3:14:38nwc2_raceday-727
