First Annual Southeastern Gravity Series offers unique mountain biking opportunity to the Southeast
A brand new downhill race series is coming to the Southeast! The first ever annual Southeastern Gravity Series, will span six months and four mountain bike parks. This event is brought to you by the combined efforts of Massanutten Resort, Bryce Bike Park, Beech Mountain Resort, and Snowshoe Bike Park.
“We hope to produce a unique series with a competitive cash purse,” says Alisa Colpitts, Race Director Snowshoe Bike Park. “And that is exactly what the Southeastern Gravity Series is. This is a great opportunity for our resorts to collaboratively support downhill mountain biking. I am confident that this series will become the premier race series in the south.”
The Series will kick off at the end of April, in the hills of the Massanutten Resort. The Yee-ha, a new USAC sanctioned race series, will be Race One, and will count as a dual series race for the Southeastern Gravity series and the Gravity East Series.
Race Two will happen in June at Bryce Bike Park. Bryce is a two- time, top five, Riders Choice Award in the Mid-Atlantic/Southeast.
The Series will continue at Beech Mountain Resort with Race Three. Beech, no stranger to quality downhill racing, has previously hosted the USAC Pro GRT, and USAC Mountain Bike Gravity Nationals.
Finally, the Series will conclude at Snowshoe Bike Park, with final Race four and the Championship. Snowshoe’s gnarly race course will challenge riders and will crown the first annual Southeastern Gravity Series Champion.
Together, the resorts will give away over $20,000 in cash and prizes to winning riders.
