Port Angeles, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/25/2012 -- The co-organizer of the 2012 Diamondback Northwest Downhill cup mountain bike race series in Port Angeles, Scott Tucker is thrilled that April has arrived and the weather looks good for the new season.

With the first three legs of the Northwest Cup scheduled to take place on the aptly named 'Dry Hill' mountain track over the next six weeks he is expecting big crowds.

Tucker recently told The Peninsula Daily News that "We are fortunate that we have the only track available at this time of year." He went on to add that "There is no other place to ride."

This season is the fifth season of mountain bike races on Dry Hill and thanks to the low elevation the course tends to attract riders and spectators from farther afield as the low elevation ensures the course is snow free when others are still covered in ice and snow.

According to Tucker the favorable conditions on Dry Hill has even attracted riders from the World Cup Circuit. He told The Peninsula Daily News that "We have the same kind of tracks they use on the World Cup Circuit, so this is a good training zone for them [as they wait for the World Cup Circuit to open for the season." Large crowds are expected at Dry Hill and that can only be good news for the Port Angeles area.
