I heard a guy at Hummel Havoc telling his friend, There is West Coast, East Coast, and No Coast. No Coast, if youve been living under a rock, is the Midwests answer to the growing domination of our sport by the coastal scenes. There are more skaters coming up into the racing scene everywhere, and in the No Coast areas, that translates to more races closer to home, instead of driving to California or Vermont.

Hummel Havoc carries on the tradition of successful independent events in the NoCoast area. It reminded me of the excellent Buffalo Bill Downhill Bloodspill (RIP) in Colorado and the taken-before-its-time Davis City Downhill in Oklahoma.
