Radiation Hill Race: It’s an Epic Wet Race


From a distance, you’ll see the clouds forming and ready to give it’s wrath. As we enter the SCTEX ( Subic- Clark Toll Expressway) the heavy rain poured and it was zero visibility on the road. It was sunny during the the weekdays, but during the race day the sky fell and it turned out to be an epic wet race. Downhill Riders braved to challenge mother nature. Many riders bailed out, but still their heart and will to win the race dominated.

Racers gathered before the start of the race.

It was a green race by the way 🙂

Radiation Hill Race was truly an epic wet race. Everyone was wet and was so stoked. Thanks to DC, Quiksilver and ROXY, to Longboards Manila, United Skateshop, Free Energy Coop, and to all the sponsors of this event, with you guys, this epic race would not happen. Arguably this race is considered to be as the best downhill wet race in the Philippines.
