Eastside Rider Nick Calafato takes his last run on a secret location in the NW called the Bigfoot Bomb. Video by Portland local Noah Throckmorton featuring a rad crew of riders from the area. The run after this he gets cutoff and washed out to the edge of the road, flips backward and breaks his lower leg (Tibia). As you can see its a pretty fast road and an impact at 40 plus mph is gonna hurt. Not even leathers would have saved him. Nick will be out for several months, but he will be back and ready for action in good time...heal up bud! Last year he ended the race season with a podium spot taking 3rd place at the Cathlamet Downhill Corral.
