Green Line Six Racing is a grassroots group of mountain bikers from the Olympia area. Cross-country, Super-D, Downhill, Epics, we ride and race it all. Besides ripping it up on the race course, we are also dedicated to building and maintaining trails in Capitol Forest, our primary riding and training area.
Courtesy of Jamey Poelker: On Friday at work I decided it was time to start training for the Oregon Enduro series and called up Matt made plans to hook up and carpool down to Oregon for some mellow Enduro training/racing. I had not been on the Dog River Trail so I was stoked to get down there and rip it apart. We arrived Saturday around 10 am registered and set up camp in a sweet spot by the river. Matthieu Denuelle and Greg Satterfield met us at registration as they had been living the good life on soft beds watching the local news in a hotel down the way. I am trying to get back to my roots and do some dirt bag racing this year. Just a bike, place to sleep, a bit of food and my Homies. The two day race event was down to one day with two stages of racing. Day one we shuttled the two stages getting in three laps and about 24 miles of classic Super D style riding. The first stage was super short and smooth and fast, kinda like a 40 yard dash for MTB's that started off in a slippery snow/mud patch and quickly turned to dry pine covered single track with a nasty hairpin to tree smash finish. Times were around the 2+ minute mark. From there riders climbed for a couple miles up to the start of stage two. This part was not timed so you had a chance to catch your breath and take in the sights. Stage two was the real deal.... fast and challenging with a few tough rock gardens and frustrating speed stopping hairpins that made me question whether I could ride my stupid bike at all. All in all I was stoked with the course and blown away that it could be so dry with snow melt at the start. After the race we picked up our medals since we all made it to the podium!!! and went off to Post Canyon to see how the recovery process from the ice storm was coming along. We rode a bit there and are happy to report that many of trails are open and ready to ride.
