Goldendale, WA, USA – Practice resumed for the second straight day on the Maryhill Loops Road as the riders tuned their equipment and continued to refine their optimal lines down the course. More competitors continued to stream in from across the country and around the globe in anticipation of Friday’s first qualifying run.
After the day of practice runs a select group of competitors including Scoot Smith, Mischo Erban, Patrick Switzer, Kevin Reimer, Matthias Lang, Andy Lally, Douglas Silva, Jackson Shapiera, Nathan Lang, Boris Schinke, Chris Chaput, Quinn DuBois and Hannah DuBois appeared for an autograph session at the local swimming center. The riders interacted with an estimated 200 fans and signed posters, Event Guides, skateboards and other miscellaneous items. By all accounts it was a big success raising community awareness for the event.
