Kill Hill Vol 2 Teufelsberg Rennen

Berlin, Germany

This was a regional race in the Kill Hill series. It was held on Teufelsberg Hill, just outside of Berlin. This was an artificial built hill, that held a US listening post during the cold war (apparently in the early 60's it was also used as a ski hill!) The course is the little used access road up to the station. The road is overgrown with lots of debris along the edges.

Åre Mountain Games

Åre, Sweden

Åre is a small ski resort in the middle of Sweden. Somewhere between 500 and 1000 people live there year round, but during winter time the population sky rockets. The village is nestled between a wide river and a steep mountain. The town was gearing up for the 2007 World Ski Championships, so most of the town was being rebuilt.

Demons of Downhill

Bainbridge, Ohio

Bainbridge is a one traffic light, one Dairy Queen town, on route 50 about an hour east of Cincinnati. Every year, towards the end of October a small street fair is held, called the Festival of Leaves. The festival has a lot of local crafts, a ton of food vendors, and some kiddie rides. Quite a lot of people check out the festival through out the weekend. Unfortunately none of them knew about the race. The festival is held to celebrate the turning of the leaves. I don't know if it was the warmer weather, but the leaves hadn't really started to change yet.
