Hinterlands

Outlying reaches of deep southeast Portland are cross-hatched with unimproved sidestreets and curious non-asphalt paths and byways. Some got the idea to do some off-road racing, CHUNK 666-style! Fun!



The first course was three blocks of unimproved roadway.



We did heats of three then a big final heat of everyone.





Three flat tires later we moved on to a slalom-style offroad course about 100+ yards long, all downhill.





Note Thud's unique on-the-fly dismount style at the very bottom of the course.
