Guama Downhill: Puerto Rican Redemption

Finishing off the round of three races in Puerto Rico was the Guama Downhill. It was quite possibly the most well organized of the three held in close succession, except for the fact that they sent a juniors race heat down the course when an ambulance was still on the course… in the blind part of a corner. The race was only about a 30 minute drive from where the Guajataka race course was. There weren’t as many spectators as at Guajataka, so it was easier to control the crowd. The haybails were even stacked two high in the high impact areas. Woo! The course workers were more vigilant about keeping people off the course and they actually ran heats one after the other until that round was over. Read more to see how the racing was.

The organizer lays out the practice and race format. One of rules for the practice heats is to wait for his, “Go.”

The local cops say, “Go!” before the race organizer gets the clear from the corners below. The riders heard, “go” so they take their practice run.

There are some close calls in these next heats, which I believe were Juniors.
