The ODC paid a visit to PA Sunday for some throat shredding heckling and to watch the worlds best DH racers ride some local NW DNR terra firma. It was an awesome day. Within a few minutes of being there I desperately wanted to get kitted up and race my bike - which was fortunately left safe at home. On this day the sport of heckling, I mean spectating was on the docket. This was one of the best times I've had at an mtb race, and I didn't even ride. The place was a party-all-over-the-mountain. And I don't mean a party of your typical mindless degenerate drunk person fashion - intoxicated people standing around slurring nonsense at each other until someone passes out or someone lands on their head at the pump track. No. This party was a party with real purpose - DH racing. If you didn't make it this year, it better be on your list for next year. The Underworld Cup. You'll likely never get another chance to watch or participate in a local race that just happens to be attended by the fastest DH racers on the planet. 480 racers plus spectators.
