Stop #5 on the Eastern States Cup New England Down Hill Series was at Bear Peak, part of Mt. Attitash in Bartlett, NH. This was a dual weekend with both an Enduro and Downhill race. I choose to only race the DH for two reasons. First and most importantly, it is the closest race to home (3 hours) so we took our camper and the whole family. A great chance to explore and have some family time during a season where I predominately travel alone. Second, in the middle of the season my body needs the time to heal in order to stay strong for the last 4 races.

Often the pre race announcements go in one ear and out the other, but that wasn't the case at the Horror at Harding hill race, which kicked off with a heart felt history lesson. The land we were racing on had been donated by Richard Webb. As a result of Webb's extraordinary generosity and commitment to long-term forest management dating back to1967, 2300 acres were established as conservation easements. Sadly, Webb passed away in early July. The race director asked all of us to keep an eye out for and tip our helmet to "Papa's rock" where Webb's ashes will be spread.
