Good Racing Bike but with DH capabilities

Hello all,
Looking for a new bike cause i'm starting out adventure racing. I'm interested in getting a full suspension that can climb well obviously, but i don't want to buy 2 bikes so i'm hoping to find something that can I can huck my bike off maybe around 5 ft as well. my price range is around 1500, i was looking into the kona coiler but i'm thinking it might be a little too much on the dh side to be considered a racer.

The Kona Dawg would be right up your alley if you want to get into adventure racing. Also look into the Rocky Mountain Switch SL, Specialized Enduro, Giant VT.
