It has been a great week of downhill so far at the Maryhill Festival of Speed in Goldendale, WA. The track record has been set and reset, we’ve had wild action, hot sun, and a wet course for the King of the Hill race. The IGSA has been using some Kroll Images to document the weekend on their Facebook page.
Record breaking speed has been the highlight so far. On Friday Doug Dalua Silva broke the two year old track record, only to see Zak Maytum snatch the record and top qualifying spot in Saturday qualifying. Local racer Alex Tongue has been right at the top of the speed charts all week. After a hot and dry week the skies opened just prior to the finals of the last chance qualifying race today making for a wet and slippery finish. Both King of the Hill races were run on a wet course, James Kelly took the downhill skateboard version when he crossed the line last but all the others were disqualified for buttboarding across the finish!
There are some preview images up now, I look forward to sharing many more soon!
