    5 different mountains ehh....
    sounds sick. We know what Plattekill is about. Mount Snow did a great job in 2010 mixing up courses and keeping it fresh. Last year I had a lot of fun riding there. Can't wait to hear what the other 3 mountains are.

    Actually working on #6 today, trying to get the last two dates set. It will be good for all those in the Northeast. Three at Mount Snow. Three at Plattekill. Finals at Plattekill. All are except two are within 2 hours drive from Albany, the other two within 3 hours from Albany. I polled a ton of riders last year and listened closely. I am stoked and hope you guts are too. Hopefully can release some dates tomorrow.

    Yes as of now, however another venue contacted us today. So then it would be ten with 3 at Plattekill, 3 at Mount Snow and 4 at other venues.

    This sounds awesome! I'm syked. I hope that these race dates don't conflict with the GES. It would be great to be able to race in both series like last year.

    whoa...so the whiteface 5k moves from GES to ESC? interesante. aside from the two races in VT, the GES looks dead to me this year, unless you're in middle PA (and I'm not).

    Keep us posted...

    WOW !! Not sure how those dates got out there, but the Official Release is coming soon. Still waiting for one more venue confirmation.

    I hope you guys are as excited for this series as we are!! We've all wanted a NE exclusive series for a while and with the stupid gas prices, it's about time. If all goes well 2012 the series will have even more venues. We want to control the growth of the series to prove we can deliver.

    One of our many core goals is to get results and series standings up on the web quickly. Another one is just to have fun.

    We'd love to find a sponsor for ds and sd to add to the events.

    All the venues are really excited to be part of the Series, it is a refreshing change. Let's show them we are as thrilled to be racing at their venues.

    The series is looking awesome! I am very excited about all of the venues! especially the killington race. good to see them hosting more then one this season.

    How are the points going to be added up? Do you have to race all or is it going to be best 6 of 10 style?

    sorry if this has been talked about

    I have to say, it's really friggin nice to see pat's peak and highland mountain on different dates. the past like 3? years they've conflicted...whatever the reason, I'm glad it's sorted, I plan on making that one and several others.

    Hey Rich

    Are you racing this season? we missed you last year.

    The crew at Mount Snow actually got very creative and made some fun courses with what they have(are allowed) to deal with.

    Hope to see you out there.

    Rich

    Jim

    Encouraging the development of gravity racers and giving those racers several options to enjoy the sport they love ...... is not a crime.

    GES and ESC will give the East coast racer a variety of great races to attend.

    We are very lucky to have so many options.

    Can't wait to take some runs with you at Platty
