Flowt Bikes DH Fiver Series – Race # 3

Racers at the 3rd 2017 DH Fiver on Iron Lotus presented by Flowt Bikes were treated to a beautiful day up Boulder and beautiful conditions on the trail. The dirt was moist and tacky and the skies were clear! 

There were only two women racing, but Erin Collins and Oshi Hampson kept it exciting with Erin beating out Oshi by less than a second! They figure they may have even crashed in the same spot. Oshi moves into a tie with Jessa Burke for the lead in the overall. 

The men’s podium was a mix of fresh and familiar faces. Connor Boycott, Simon Gagnon, and Nathan Jecks put in repeat speedy performances for this year, while Ryan Bugye put in a quick time, proving […]

Last chance for XC racing!

The fourth and final Arrow Helicopters XC Fiver Race is on August 2nd.

This course truly is a cross country challenge as it takes you on a traverse north via Stimulus and Black Forest before dropping you into some old school tech on Break a Leg, Root Canal and Richard Liqueur. There are no long climbs on this course but the challenge will be maintaining speed through long sections of uninterrupted rolling single track. After mentally stimulating racers last time with a novel format we are back to the standard two lap format for this event.

Don’t forget that Arrow Helicopters is offering $20 off a helicopter drop this summer to anyone who takes part in at least two XC Fiver races. Not only do you get […]
