Contest Info: Events and schedule:

Saturday (Salem):
Single-Lane GS
Dual Hybrid

Sunday (Salem Soap Box Derby Hill):
Straight Parallel Slalom (100 cone)
Slalomcross






Slight change of plans:

Due to a construction project, we are unable to use the Mt Tabor Park site (in Portland). Therefore, all events will be on Saturday and Sunday in Salem at the Soap Box Derby Hill.

Since the Soap Box Derby Hill is not quite steep enough for a slide competition, we will be running a Slalomcross event


Please sign up at www.stategamesoforegon.org

Sign up for only ONE event on Sunday, or else you will be charged too much.




1st Place Finisher: Tay Hunt (HS), John Stryker (GS), Gareth Roe (TS),
2nd Place Finisher: Corey Moy (HS), Tay Hunt (GS), Dan Miszowski (TS)
3rd Place Finisher: Brad Jackman (HS, GS, TS), Corey Moy (Slalomcross)
Overall Results: Paul Howard set the courses:

A pair of "mirrored" hybrid courses with a good mixed bag of offsets, stingers, angled lines, and curves. A 25 second course for the fast racers. The surprise top finisher was a very strong looking Tay Hunt who "hadn't been on a board in months". Sure Tay, whatever..... Skip Marcotte, Brad Jackman, and Corey Moy were also looking very good in this course.

An easy-yet-fast flowing single-lane GS course. John Stryker and Tay Hunt owned this course from the 1st beep. It was great to see these two powerful racers on a course where they could pump strong at high speeds.

Two tight straight courses. A 100-cone 6.5-foot course for the A-class and an 80-cone 8-foot course for the B class. The 6.5 foot spacing was too difficult for most of the racers. Only Gareth Roe, Pete Ingraham, and Judy Oyama actually looked comfortable and in control on this course. For most everyone else it took a bit of luck to make the course. Many competitors had wonderful 90-cone runs going. Too bad it was a 100-cone course. The 80-cone course was very doable for the experienced racers, but tripped up a lot of the new racers. Gareth Roe and Judy Oyama really put on a good show for us.

A slalomcross course using the Hybrid course as a starting point, removing the center 1/2 of the course and replacing it with 5 "open" gates for shared use by the racers. The racers would go through the upper 1/4 of the course in their individual lanes, then enter the common area of open gates where they would tuck or power-pump to try to pass the other racer. Then they would enter the final individual 1/4 of the course and go for the finish. John Ravitch qualified first, but had a plane to catch and dropped out before the Head-to-Head.

This race format was very popular with the racers. As far as I know Jack Smith was the first to try this format at the 2003? World Championships and Paul Howard took that concept and adapted it to the Salem Hill. The surprise winner was Jordan Huotari from Spokane Washington. Jordan started racing last year. He qualified 6th in the event, won each of the ladder-bracket rounds and finally displaced Tay Hunt out of the top spot on the very last race.

[b][size=18]IMPRESSIONS[/size][/b]

Very nice to see the "Tactis SK8" team show up with a van full of new Jr racers, a positive attitude, matching bright green team shirts, and several trunk-fulls of stoke.

Darrin Moy (4 Jr-class gold medals) can become a real contender in any race if he would go to more races and practice a little with his dad.

Great to see the massive racing improvement of Jordan Huotari. I think his 1st race was last year in Spokane, then he came out to Salem for our end-of-year event. I thought I heard him say that he skates 6 miles each day to work and back. He not only improved tremendously since last year, he improved on each run every day of the event.

This was the most fun Oregon State Games so far and I look forward to running the event again next year.
