The West Australian State Downhill Championships is always one of the best events on the calendar and 2014 did not disappoint! After extreme rainfall on the Friday before the race, organisers Peel Districts Mountain Bike Club were nervous that competitors and spectators would face trying conditions. Fortunately the weather gods were kind and race day conditions could not have been better, with a recently dried track running very fast with good grip. Over 130 competitors saw a six year record broken and a huge number of spectators were trackside to see who would walk away with the crown of State Champion.

There was plenty of entertainment for the weekend with a friendly crowd, great racing, hot competition, and an awesome track with plenty of jumps. That’s not to mention local band Slick Rick and the Sunday Blues playing all day Sunday, fresh coffee available, Monster Energy truck, food and drinks as well as spot prizes and giveaways. Goat Farm Mountain Bike is always a favourite being close to Perth and having several great fun downhill tracks – the bottom sections are always a favourite for spectators – mainly due to the big jumps and high speeds. Primary event sponsor Carine Cycles provided a mechanic on Sunday to help with any urgent bike work as well as some demo bikes so anyone could get a feel for what the latest and greatest feels like.
