As you may have already seen, I dropped a load of photos from this year’s Cathlamet Downhill Corral. While I was sorting through them, I pulled out a number of sequences from four different events at Cathlamet that were packed with action. I made this GIFs for your enjoyment.

Ross Druckrey shows his concentration on the sidewalk slalom course.
Alicia Fillback has a very expressive face when she is blasting down the sidewalk slalom course.
Will and Zion get tight through the bank, having to feel their way through.
A guy filming with a drone somehow lost control of it and it hit Landon in the head. Though I didn’t catch that, I did catch him running out to grab it and then getting caught in Byron’s tracks and spooked a bit.
Brandon DesJarlais lands a big air and slides to a stop.
Will Stephan’s grin is almost as big as the gap he just cleared.

Ramps from the previous two days of events lay on the side as riders dip into the steep section.
Conner Stanek, Brandon, DesJarlais and Martin DePass practice before racing.
Jon Tecate spills and his wallet falls out of his pocket. Luckily someone pointed it out to him and he ran over to pick it up before pushing off.
David Mitchell high-sides and slams hard.
David Mitchell was having a bad day. During this race heat, Jackson Wells picks up the lead around the Coffin Corner and Jack Cooper crashes out.
In a semi-final heat, Martin DePass makes “De Pass” of the day on Ross the Boss. It looked dirty, but was also pretty awesome.
In this semi-final heat, Chip Wood and Brandon Tissen have a close call but both make it through the corner. Landon Jackson wasn’t as lucky.
In the consolation final heat, Chip Wood leads until he takes Coffin Corner too fast and wide.
For the final heat, Byron Essert led, with Jake Wilkinson and Jordan Koehler close behind. Jordan goes into the bales and Brandon Tissen passes for third.
