Race Report: Gravity East Series #3 at Blue Mountain, Palmerton, PA



Race Report: Gravity East Series #3 at Blue Mountain, Palmerton, PA




We had a beautiful weekend for racing. Sunny, but not unbearably hot and a bit of rain a couple of days prior made course conditions pretty much perfect. The course was about as pure a DH course as they could make at Blue using existing trails. Most I had ridden a number of times before and were also used in the enduro race a few months prior. The difference being some sections had become much rougher after additional months of riding. Alumni Chairman may remember the built-up log drops in one of the enduro stages — well now the landings were totally rutted out and rooted with braking bumps. The trick now to doing them was to hit them with enough speed to jump over the roots.

My race report if that was me:
I won!
I phucking won!
I beat all those mofrackies! - Alumni Chairman
