Hero dirt, a DH course with some serious flow and one of the most unique Dual tracks in history, The 2001 UCI World Cup in Durango, CO, had it all. Minnaar, Gracia, Barel, Rockwell, Hannah, Rennie and so many more roosting for the ages. Man or Astroman graciously providing permission to the tunes.

    Todd Leduc! One of the better guys to pass through the DH scene.
    I remember when he replaced the rear shock on his Foes with a solid metal rod for the Lake Morena DH races they used to have in San Diego way out near the Mexican border. For mo' better pedaling!

    Recently watched the whole Leduc family (Todd, Kyle and the old man) battle it out racing short course trucks.
    Still pinning it as hard as ever.

    Love Minnaar murdering that line. He put on a hell of a show.

    It's a damn shame that Purgatory did away with everything DH related. I'm from Durango I was born here in 1998. It is both awesome and frustrating to see the super rad DH course I've been laying ski tracks over since I was five. As an aspiring pro racer I can only imagine how different my summers would be if I had a lift accessed WC course 25 minutes from my house. Hopefully in the future there will be DH races there as well as a bike Park! I assure you it would see tons of use since Durango is such a bicycle crazed community.
