Over the weekend, as typhoon signal #2 threatened Ilocos Norte, 58 downhillers from Manila, Pangasinan, Baguio, La Union and Laoag traveled miles to compete against each other on the slopes at Pasuquin in the 1st Sinnalugan@Sapat. Thank God, the heavens were bright and the earth was hard til every bike was packed up! A successful finish for the downhill bike challenge exhaustively prepared for a good many weekends by the Batibols Bikers in cooperation with the peoples of barangays Sulbec and Sapat. The extended support from DROP Downhill Philippines, led by President Erwin Benipayo, and National Downhill Team Coach Arjuna Saulo is very much appreciated. The same goes to the Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte, headed by Gov. Imee Marcos; the LGU of Pasuquin; the Philippine National Red Cross Ilocos Chapter; and other benevolent sponsors.
