Race Cascadia: Cascadia Dirt Cup #5 - Hood River, OR 2

This past weekend the Race Cascadia crew made it back out to Hood River for the final stop of the Cascadia Dirt Cup.  We say made it back out because what was supposed to be the starting race was shifted to the final race after there was expected 100+ degree days in Hood River. Luckily the weather gods smiled on us for October and provided us some amazing dirt, and perfect weather to round out an eventful 2021 season. There was some grease in the morning on the iconic Hidden rock garden, some dust on stage two, and perfect hero dirt on 5 and 6. Many racers later reporting that they would get through a turn and wish they had gone faster when they realized it held. At the end of the day Ingrid Larouche and Andrew Cavaye took the top honors and the overall for the year.
