RESULTS: 2019 Nevada State Downhill Championships

Nik Nestoroff and Amanda Wentz are 2019 Nevada State downhill champions. Downhillmike's annual race at Bootleg Canyon is a die-hard favorite for anyone willing to brave the jagged rocks and ruthless terrain of the desert in January. This year's course hit the legendary Poop Chute, which is a steep, sketchy piece of survival mid course. Nestoroff won the Pro Men's class by 5 seconds with Wentz taking the women's win by just under 6 seconds. Junior winner, Cole Suetos, dropped a 3:19 which would have put him in 2nd place in the Pro Men's class. There were 14 groms under the age of 15 racing (3 of them in the age 6-10 class!) and micro Junior ripper, Teagan Heap ran a 4:32 in the women's 11-14 class. The young talent pool is growing.
