Trestle Gravity Series #4 - Armen Davis

 
Trestle Gravity Series #4 - Armen Davis
 
September 15, 2013 - 
 

The last race of the season couldn't have gone better, or worse.  The weekend started off with an air DH, with this course having the most back-to-back jumps of the series.  The times were tight, as everyone got their pedal on, squashing every jump.  A great run with no mistakes, I took the win in my category, only seven seconds off the top pro time.

Sunday's race was easily my favorite of the Trestle series, as it was quite a bit faster.  It had an average start, but the most fun part was coming in fast from the smooth sections into the technical trails.  This course was also a bit longer and had more pedaling compared to the past tracks.  When it came to race day, I felt prepared and laid down a smooth, solid run.  Having the overall lead, I could temper the speed, reduce the risks and, sometimes to your advantage, take the win.  My goals of taking the Trestle Gravity Series overall and the Colorado State Championship wrapped up a great season!  Of course, I HAD to take more runs with my friends after the race.  And, as is often the case in the last run of the day, I crashed hard on a fast berm, fracturing the 5th metacarpal in my hand.  Casting is for 3 weeks, which isn't too bad, and luckily it happened at the end of the season.  Thanks to 5ten and my other sponsors, mom too, being fundemental to my progression in the sport.  Many thanks to the Winter Park Competition Center for putting on a great series at Trestle Bike Park (www.trestlebikepark.com)!
