Gorge Jump Off video update

We've had killer conditions for the Gorge Jump Off the past 10 days including an amazing 3.3 day at The Wall. Mother Nature gave all she had and took a rest on the final day with light easterlies and blazing temps.

The and Shadowbox crew are busy cranking through the hours and hours of video and Shadowbox ride data, so the break in the wind comes at a great time for us! The awards party is this Saturday night at the new Waucoma Club (formerly River City) starting at 8:30pm. If you can't make it, we'll be posting the entire video online after the party, but until then, here's the last video update to keep you occupied until we release the results.

Be sure to check back here tomorrow (Friday) as we're going to give everyone online the chance to vote for the best crash and most tweaked move. You're votes count as we'll be awarding prizes based on your votes and also, everyone who votes online is automatically entered in our drawing to win a GoPro HD Wide camera!
