Gravity East Series Stops at Highland Mountain Bike Park for the First race of the 2012 GES series

Event Information

For Immediate Release:

Gravity East Special Race Event

October 15th & 16th

Highland Mountain Bike Park is stepping it up again!


This time Highland brings the ProGrt course for this event.  The Highland race marks the new date due to Hurricane Irene, this race will award points for 2012 season, not double points as previously mentioned, and you will not lose any of those points if you change categories.


Bring the whole family to Highland Mountain Bike Park and enjoy the awesome lodge and gourmet food. Bring your short travel/ park/jump bike and check the Slopestyle course, home of the Claymore Challenge, or hit up the jump lines  and the pump track you’ll wish there was just more time in the day. Highland has a GREAT TRACK! And so much to offer beyond the race itself which is going to be a great race indeed.


This weekend also includes Highland Mountain Bike Park’s own “Women’s Freeride Festival” on Saturday October 15th. Live music in the bar Saturday evening by local Vermont band Mr. Dix.


Also it is important to know the GES will absorb the 5.00 increase in entry fees for Highland with online registration only so please register online! Save $5.00 over on-site fees. Register here:http://www.BikeReg.com/14445
