After parading around the Arcata Plaza, teams competing for glory (or just trying to stay upright) took off on the 2017 Grand Kinetic Championship. As the crowd cheered on Saturday, the human-powered contraptions made their way to the Manila Dunes to face Deadman's Drop, the steep, sandy, downhill challenge that's toppled many a team. Photographer Mark McKenna was there amid the gears and gritted teeth, catching the action. Check out the slideshow below and stay tuned for more updates this weekend.
