Diabloween was the ultimate “hike a bike”. The day began with no power and non stop 50 mph wind gusts. Despite all the problems, many hardcore riders stayed for the day, pushing to the top and/or chilling at the bottom to watch the jump contest.

Props to all the riders that stayed to cheer on the riders! The weather was not cooperating and the riders were dealing with the cold weather, the wind and abstractive Halloween costumes (just ask the rider who lost his boxer shorts).

Since the chair lift was not functional, the riders were forced to pull DJ tricks off the lower drop off. Pulling tricks off a drop is a scary situation, but this didn’t seem to stop the riders.

Armature riders were throwing down pro level tricks and the pro level riders (who were not supposed to compete in the jump contest at all) were wowing the crowd.

The event organizers did the best job they could with the judging. They purposely weeded through the pro’s riders and moved 5 riders on to the final dirt jam.

Table tops, no footers, kick outs, Hanna’s, no handers, crank flips, x-ups and bar spins were unleashed for the finals. Some riders, battered and bruised continued to hike back to the top jump after jump on a mission to win the $500 first prize.

DOWN Cycles rider: Peter Agovino aboard his Iron Horse 7 point 7 was one of the brave few who continued to ride regardless of fatigue and injury.

His skills had the crowd going nuts and after a couple hard crashes, the fans were chanting his name: “Pirate pants, pirate pants”!

With a clicked no hander, a double can and a crank flip, Peter wrapped up the event and stuck his last drops/jumps perfectly.

“Thank You” goes out to the Event organizers/ Diablo Freeride Park for a job well done! I’d also like to thank Iron Horse bikes for sponsoring the event, bringing out demo bikes and donating parts for the product toss!
