Hey guys just wanted to remind everyone that this weekend may 4th is the etsu dh/ds race.
We have some interesting things planned for the slalom race that will combine the upper section of the four cross course and feed into the slalom course as usual, should make for 30+ second runs.

For those that like to hurt, sunday we will be doing a six hour xc race on our trails.

Hope to see you all there

hmm, interesting. How long does the DH race usually last since it is the best of two runs? Was thinking of backpacking on Sat. night and I'm pretty sure I could be back in Asheville and on trail by 6:30ish.

Any recent videos of the course, or has not much changed from the race last year (I see a few videos from last year).

First post!
I have never ridden here. Is a DH bike necessary for the race or is a trail bike more appropriate?
Thanks

The downhill race is typically over by 1:30. Not much has changed at all from last year. A different jump up top and a new ride around for a mandatory jump in the middle of the course.

Here are results. Thanks to everyone who showed up for the race!

Had a blast..thanks for makin it happen! By chance do you have the times to go with the results? Just want to see how bad I got smoked!:D
Matt, I had a 1:28 and you had a 1:29. I think they were like 4 1:29's. Super tight racing except at the top. Winner had a 1:24 and I ain't even gonna tell you what Geritt threw down.
That said Matt the guys in front of us in Cat 1, I think the oldest one was 20. ;)

Thanks for posting the times Jay :)

I'm awaiting on the age/class breakdown for the official USAC qualifications for CAT1, but man some fast times on the results... Still thinking about where in the F*** I would have made up 13 seconds for the podium?!?! Must have missed a shortcut or I'm just getting old.
