The Westbeach Chinese Downhill is one of the most competitive underground events of the year. The event is announced last minute, with invites sent via text message to riders who are free to pass the message on to “those who are worthy”.
Riders meet at the top of million dollar ridge at the crack of one for an all out, every man for himself head to head to head race down the longest run in North America. The race doesn’t end at the bottom of the run. Once down, riders must sprint to the bottom of an underground parkade and chug a beer.
To the victor goes the spoils, who takes home $500 cash, a Texas mickey and the title of “The king of Creekside”. This year, Marcus Culver was crowned king while many other riders nursed bruised egos and sore legs. Thank you Westbeach for keeping it real.
