The Pajarito Punishment downhill is back! After a little break, Pajarito hosted the 2014 state downhill finals for the first time. As an added bonus, the race coincided with Pajarito’s annual SummerFest party. Ad the two, and you get great downhill racers, plenty of enthusiastic spectators, live music, and +17 craft breweries waiting for the competitors to celebrate their run.
As always, the race provided an excellent opportunity to catch some exciting biking photos.

This year’s course was more spectator friendly than years past. Great for the junior racers looking for inspiration.
