This is a special Masters Category charity downhill race in support of the Arthritis Foundation. Arthritis is the nation's # 1 cause of disability. Fitness and exercise are an important component of treatment and therapy, with cycling considered an arthritis friendly exercise.

One of the foundation's "Heroes", professional downhill mountain bike racer Lars Tribus has become a spokesman and avid supporter of the foundation. He was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 9 and battled symptoms throughout his childhood. When he was 12, he was told by his doctor he'd spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair. The doctor got it half right...he did spend his life on wheels, just not sitting down.

Eligible participants are all 30+ men and women Pro DH current USAC license holders. Entry fee is $80.00 and if racers are also entered in the Gravity East series race the fee will be discounted to $40.00. In addition all 30+ Category 1 - 3 racers must be entered in the Gravity East series race at Windham would also then be eligible to participate and the entry fee will be $30.00.
