Canada Cup DH #3 July 18, Mt Washington Vancouver Island BC

Luke Kitzanuk (Giant) and Micayla Gatto (Rocky Mountain) were both victorious at this Wednesday's Canada cup at Mount Washington Resort, BC. The clouds rolled in, the skies opened up and it absolutely poured during the last hour of pro practice sending most riders running, but saw the veteran riders taking to the course with smiles on their faces. When it comes to riding downhill in the mud, experience is key.

Kitzanuk showed he has that experience, ripping the course apart with a time of 3:56.820 and winning by almost 2 seconds over a stacked field including all of the best riders this country has to offer. Mitch Delfs, the Australian Junior National Champion who is in the country racing for DHRacer/Intersport, was second just two tenths ahead of Whistler rider Jeff Beatty (Orange Mojo)

Gatto also had a big field to deal with. The familiar names in Canadian women's downhill were all here trying to keep Gatto from winning three straight. None could catch the Rocky Mountain rider in the rain as she slid her way down the mountain with a time of 4:56.16 sealing up the win and the series.

Elite and Junior expert riders now concentrate on seeding runs today and National Championships Friday on the same course. Conditions could be much different, as no heavy rain is in the forecast and the sky is currently blue. Mud will begin to get tracked onto the rocks and roots with this morning's practice runs and the huge holes that started to form yesterday will be in full effect by tomorrow.
