Official Nevada State DH Champs Post Race Report
This next video is a must watch!
Much of the footage was taken from a remote control helicopter.
Saturday was more open practice on the downhill course, but showtime for the super d race.
The super d course was gnarly. Skyline to E. Leg
With over 200 athletes in attendance it was no surprise to see some well known pros at the event.
Here’s one of Cameron Zink during his Chainless DH run. Cam came in 3rd in the Open Chainless DH with a time of 3:35.97
The weekend weather was a mix of sun, wind, then rain to sun with no wind for race day. That mix proved tricky for the course workers as they constantly re-taped the course(s). By Sundays main event (qualifiers for the dh nationals) the track was perfect! Tacky and taped from top to bottom.
Here are a few pictures from the downhill race taken by Justin Dawes Photography. Just follow Justin’s link if you wish to purchase your action pictures.
On the women’s pro podium was Reno Nevada’s Sierra Smith making her pro debut. Sierra took 3rd place with a time of 4:52.46
Great job Sierra!
Gabriela Williams from the Czech Republic takes 2nd place in the pro womens race with a time of 4:06.62
Sedona’s Jackie Harmony was the womens pro winner of the Nevada State DH Championships with a dominating time of 3:48.65

Jeff Frampton of Boulder City’s All Mountain Cyclery won the single-speed dh on his 29′er with a smoking fast time of 3:39.20
