Beech Mountain Gravity Nationals Qualifier Race

Beech Mountain Resort held the Gravity Nationals Qualifier Race over the weekend, and it was a huge success! Saturday was the downhill qualifying and mother nature was barely on our side. It was a lil chilly, very windy, and foggy all day. Despite the weather, everyone seemed to be having a blast and loving the new AM trail! Sunday was much better with bright sunshine and warmer temps. The Dual Slalom course was insane, and everyone was stoked on it! I didn't get to stay to see the podiums either day because I had to leave to go to work, but I got to watch most of the races both days.

USA Cycling Mountain Bike Gravity Nationals will be held September 22-25th at Beech Mountain Resort. This will be one hell of an event, so don't miss it!

Here's some pics from Saturday's downhill race...
