Kiran MacKinnon, a Soquel High alum, flew through his race at the 21st annual Spring Thaw Downhill Mountain Bike Race in Ashland, Ore., on Sunday to be one of two riders to break the course record.

With a time of 3 minutes, 59.66 seconds, MacKinnon [Santa Cruz Bicycles] placed second behind Ashland’s Nathan Riddle, who was just five-one hundredths of a second faster. The previous record was four minutes flat.

MacKinnon is next scheduled to compete at the Pro GRT Chile Challenge on June 10 in Angelfire, New Mexico.
