Cadence is a word reserved for pro-style starts and avoiding a “barge”. Starts can make or break a racers opportunity to beat their competitor.

The 40th Annual Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup was held on Friday, March 15 at Attitash Mountain Resort. There were 117 racers that participated in today’s event, which is the longest running pro-style dual GS in the United States. Proceeds from today’s event benefit the Eastern Slope Ski Club, a Mt. Washington Valley-based non-profit organization that funds grade school skiers in the Mt. Washington Valley.

“This year’s 40th race brought in more racers than we’ve seen in several years,” said Terry O’Brien, owner of the Red Parka Pub and event organizer.

All racers get two runs for the qualifying round, which is held in the morning. The top 32 racers square off in the afternoon, with several categories of winners, based on division. Division A competes to be crowned the official champion of the Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup. This year, four-time winner Ben Drummond squared off against rookie Ace Tarberry in the Division A finals, with Tarberry beating out Drummond to be crowned the 2013 champion of the Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup. Official finishes, based on division, are listed below.

One of the hardest parts about the bump is landing and gathering it back together to be ready for the gate. In this photo, the Drummonds are well known competitors in the annual Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup and were bracketed together for the early afternoon elimination round.

The Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup stems from the Red Parka Pub, located in Downtown Glen, New Hampshire. The restaurant opened its doors in 1973 and along with the pub came the birth of the first Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup. Join us in 2013 for the 40th anniversary of this event.

The Red Parka Pub Challenge is held on the third Friday in March every year at Attitash Mountain Resort, located in Bartlett, New Hampshire. For more information, visit redparkapubchallengecup.com.
