Angel Fire Bike Park Crowns the new King and Queen of the mountain.

What a race, what a series! We anticipated that it would come down to the last race, and it certainly did not disappoint.

Angel Fire Fire 5 Finale
The perfect crisp fall conditions brought riders from all over the Rockies. While the bike parks in Colorado closed earlier in the month, that did not stop the riders from the state making pilgrimage for one last run down the mountain before the season ended for all. The New Mexican riders were looking to be crowned top dog after a great season of racing and riding on their home mountain.The Fire was run on World Cup top to bottom for a nail biting finale. The trail crew spent weeks tweaking it to be the fastest flowing World Cup to date. Mission accomplished.
Junior Girls

Junior Woman and current National Champion: Hannah Weinman started the event off first down the black diamond course. She finished first in 7:31 and clinched the overall series.

One of the most exciting categories was the Junior Men as the top five were all in contention to take the overall series. Riders from Europe and Colorado came down to be the party spoilers, but in the end Amani Vigil took the win with a blistering time of 4:45 and secured a second overall in the Series, with Garrett Enriquez’s high placing of the day secured his overall series win and a lucky recipient of a 2017 Gravity Pass.Open Women had a strong field with the College Championships happening the same weekend here. In the end, Silvia Roth from Switzerland took the win, with Amanda Bass taking the overall title of the series.The biggest category was Open Men with 25 racers lining up at the starting gate. Colorado rider Sean McGovern took the win and Jake Rehfeld from Heart & Soul Racing took the overall.

Big money was at stake, and the region’s top pro women were there in force. Amanda Batty took her second win of the year but missing her minimum races for the series had her off the overall. Jacqueline Harmony’s consistency and a staple in the race series landed her a $900 paycheck as an overall winner (drinks were on her!).


Chris Boice clinched the Pro Men overall with a podium in Fire 5 #4, and Zach Graveson took the win with a World Cup time of 4:13! The fastest of the day.

Thanks to all that made this happen. Timers, Sponsors, Trail Crew, Medics, Marshalls. It was a team effort to make this the best DH Series in the U.S.
