For the last few years Blitz 2 The Barrel has been a race that get’s professional mountain bike racers from around the nation all riled up. Reason: $20,000 in prize money to be handed out to those who podium, and even more money goes to those who style on the course, arm wrestle, and drink.

The sun was out and the downhill drops were decent on this course. Some of our tried and true favorites were on the trails for the race… Adam Craig, Carl Decker, Kelli Emmett, Sue Butler, Becky Bjork were just a few who were there to bomb down the trails from Wanoga Sno-Park. The riders dropped around 3,000 vertical feet, all the way to 10 Barrel Brew Pub in the heart of Bend, OR where they had to pound a beer to finish the course.
