Honda Turner Race Team: 2003 Durango with BikeCo.comnate collins

This led the way for larger corporate involvement in DH racing in what had previously been a bit of a “grassroot” feel.
We’ve been extremely lucky to continue relationships with most of the faces pictured. How many of these riders do you recognize still involved in our sport!!
Flip through these photos. You will see one of the ways that pro teams scout trail networks prior to GoPro – pics from the lift. These would be reviewed for ideal line choices based on a particular racer’s strengths.
