2021 Cascadia Dirt Cup #1 Tiger Mountain

The past year has brought some challenges with running a race series.  2020 brought a pandemic... and then for our first race of 2021 Mother Nature decided to throw us a massive heat wave in the PNW resulting in the rescheduling of our race in Hood River.  This left us with the first race of the season being this past weekend at Tiger Mountain just outside of Issaquah, WA.  Mother Nature graced us with gorgeous high 70s and sunny skies making for an amazing day out on the mountain.  330 riders made it out for our sold-out enduro at the amazing trails, riding the likes of Predator, NOTG, EBAD, Joyride and Legend, the racers enjoyed dry and fast conditions on a wide range of trails.  Eric Olsen and Ingrid Larouche took the pro wins with over 16mins of race time over 4 stages. As always, one of the major highlights of the race day was presenting Evergreen MTB Alliance with a check for $5,000 for their continued trail building efforts, including building more trails on Tiger Mtn.
