High View Autumn Bomb II: Downhill Race and Freeride Jam (VT, 10/1)

This event looks sweet. I mean really sweet. If you want to have what looks like some of the most fun you’ll have at a race in a while, check out the Autumn Bomb II in Essex Junction, VT on October 1st and 2nd. The event will feature a 4-person heat (64 people total) 35 mph+ downhill race on Saturday, while Sunday will be a fun as hell freeride jam with prizes and podiums.

While the downhill event go down on the same hill as last year (High View), the event organizers are mixing things up a little by adding some gates in after the start, creating 2 crash corners and some tight turns all around. We’ll see some very fun, very exciting racing. It’s a bit on the slower end of the spectrum, making it appealing for those just getting into the sport. It look like you only have to register for the downhill competition, there is a fee for the event which hasn’t been solidified yet, the VTLBC said it should be around $20 though. If you want to register head over and do so at the NCDSA site, spots are filling up fast with 27 of the 64 already locked up.

On Day Two, Sunday the 2nd, the freeride jam will go down on the “Damn Good Hill,” which features some sweeping turns and 100ft of vertical drop. Organizers promise that the pavement is absolutely butter and is going to make for a prime jam location. If you don’t believe me, give the hill itself a peek over on the right.

Sponsors right now include our good friends over at Surf-Rodz, Team Quebec, Kebbek Skateboards, Clutch Skateboards, Comet Skateboards, Projection Films and more being added to the list as the event draws near.
