Angie's Curves is a certified event on the International Downhill Federation's pro circuit and set the precedent for all other races to come. The race was a three day event that started on Friday, June 21st & it was clear from day one that Angie's Curves would provide one of the fastest, most challenging, and strategically demanding courses to date. The Angie's Curves event culminated in finals between Sector 9 team riders Ricardo Reis and Chance Gaul, as well as Arbor riders James Kelly, and Duke Degen. James Kelly ended up claiming victory with the fastest time of 1:50.404. Duke Degen took 2nd and Ricardo Reis came in 3rd.

Of the Maryhill competition Spoky says "Well here was the thing - 20 girls would be fighting on that road called Maryhill Loops . I had no idea on how the race will go on . All the girls felt pretty comfortable on that road - the few things you have to do is close the doors if you’re in front and draft and take the line if you’re behind … looks simple but not that much when you’re racing aggressive ladies !! To be honest i was super happy to be in the final - I said to myself, keep going , stay safe , wait for a open door".

What excitement & what skill to finish on the podium in such a strong international field. We hope that Spoky Woky has even better luck at the Whistler Longboard Festival in Canada this weekend.
