Poster illustration by Jimbo Phillips rider is Steven King photo is by Farid A. Abraham on the Giant Slalom Hill Mosher Tunnel Road. Nice road 1/2 mile long race today with 90 cones. I'm passing on this race for the second year and focusing on the hybrid and tight slalom which is set for Saturday and Sunday. This year the Seismic World Slalom Skateboard Event is running the tight on Oak Street which is where they had the Gorge Games finals and it is newly paved.
Kevin at the US Nationals last weekend in Colorado where he took the overall in the Men's Open Division for the second year in a row.
Posters and t shirts will be sold at the event only and there are not very many being produced. Collectors item for sure.
My comment in the article about not new racers not as experienced as Kevin was since he raced snowboards and was a 2 time World Champion...
