    Gravity Slave Downhill Race - Crested Butte - 9.8.13

    With the passing of the Mountain States Cup (FSM rest it's soul) there's been a certain... void if you will for Downhill racing this year. Sure, there's the Winter Park series and that's cool. And a ProGRT plus Nationals, but that's in Angel Fire. It's just not the same without some of the classic Colorado venues to visit, shred and race DH bikes, and get rowdy with your friends. Telluride, Keystone, Snowmass... all gone.

    Good thing Evolution Bike Park at Crested Butte is putting it on the line and stepping up with a true Downhill race this fall. Sunday, September 8th, 2013 is race day, with practice days Friday and Saturday. $2000 cash prize purse according to the event poster, a chili & beer festival on Saturday the 7th, and a $50 entry fee which includes race day lift ticket.

    The track looks to be a re-vamped version of what's been run at the MSC events, which is a super fun, low consequence sort of thing that is pretty easy to ride but hard to ride FAST with lots of corners and few bits of rough and tumble. Check the course preview:

    **NOTE: I've got nothing to do with this event. Sorry that I'm not sorry to spam the board, but if you're upset by someone getting the word out about what could be a fun event—you need a hobby besides the internet.
    The older I get, the faster I was.





    Punch it, Chewie.
