THE KAMIKAZE

THE KAMIKAZE

Known as the fastest downhill in the world, racers on the 3.4 mile course can hit 60+ MPH! The fastest of the fearless clock times that are less than four minutes! As historically significant as it is speedy, riding Kamikaze is like playing baseball at Dodger Stadium: generations of greats have transcended their limits (and slid in the dirt) here! Lacking huge drops, it’s also the ideal course for newbies to dip their SPD-clad toes into the downhill, err, water. Come on in, the pumice is fine!

“The Mammoth Kamikaze was the most important downhill race from the mid '80s to the late '90s." -- Jimmy Deaton
