It's 2008, the year of the ZooBomb invasion of the Maryhill Festival of Speed. It's a downhill race located on the Maryhill Loops Road near Goldendale, Washington. The race consists of longboarders, rollerbladers, street lugers, classic lugers, and my favorite: the Gravity Bikers. Many of my close personal friends are slated to race in this international competition. The basics? No drivetrain, heavy bikes, solid brakes (we hope) and a whole lot of speed. So what better thing to do than to strap my mini-bike (read: child's size bicycle) to the back of my KLR and head south to cheer them on.
