This year the Mount Saint Helen downhill was extended with more runout at the bottom. It did lessen the braking bumps in the middle of a the hill (a little). Here, Travis Preston (11) gaps his chasers on the high-speed 20-story drop.
Nine-time World Vet Champion Alan Olson decided to come out of retirement when he turned 70. He wanted to add the Over-70 title to his Over-60, Over-50 and Over-40 crowns. He crashed in both motos — this time while leading moto one. He was consoled by the fact that he still has nine Championship and most people have none. He remounted both times to finished 2-2 behind Washington’s Gary Chase.
Travis Preston is hot after Doug Dubach’s World Vet records. Travis notched his second World Vet crown this year, but on the same weekend Doug won two titles (Over-40 and Over-50) — which means that Travis still has 22 titles to win to catch “Dr. D.”
