Thanks to everyone who came out to the Cycle Solutions O-Cup DH Awards Winners presented by Commencal. We had a fantastic evening, some great prizes were donated by sponsors like a Norco 250 frame and Minoura trainer from Norco Bicycles!. Titec Components and Want beverages also gave up some wicked stuff, and Industry skate park donated a deity bar and free passes to the park!
Best of all, MC Krishna did an amazing job in our auction to raise money for the Ontario DH Team who is going to train in Nevada this February. All totalled, $481.48 were raised for these rippers to help with expenses. The generosity in the crowd was truly amazing, with the live auction battles being furious, as Zdriluk actually took cell phone bids to win the Norco 250 frame for his buddy back home!
