PRESS RELEASE

Racers attitudes this weekend were at an all-time high with race #1 in the Angel Fire’s Fire 5 downhill race series getting underway. With much of Colorado still buried in snow, Angel Fire Bike Park saw a record weekend in attendance this weekend attributing to a great turnout. The track up for domination was good ol’ World Cup Top-to-Bottom.

The military deuce offers a perfect mobile starting ramp for the bike park. This will be the starting ramp for the entire series and a great spot to grab some shade before dropping in.

Racer #76 Colin Mcelyea dropping in on the first feature of World Cup. Junior Men were out in huge attendance this race weekend. The future athletes of downhill racing are super fun to watch.

Racer#129 Garret Enriquez age 15, winner of the Junior Men, scrubbing in off one of the rougher sections of the course. This kid made the course look easy and with a time just over 5 minutes, shows some serious potential from this young athlete. Definitely keep your eye out for this name in the future.

Open Women racer smashing through the rock garden. Racers this weekend were challenged with some course redesign and loose conditions.

Quintin Kurtz, winner of the Open Category rivaled Pro Times. Young Talent is so fun to watch, especially when they throw down pro times. Quintin was only 10 seconds behind Pro Men. Definitely another athlete to watch out for. Angel Fire Bike Park is known to produce amazing downhillers by means of the big mountain riding it has to offer.
