Yep. I got bucked in the middle woods section taking a chance on a pinner line and put my foot down and got twisted bad enough to keep me out of the race. I gave my plate to Cody, so that is not me racing under my name, however I hope he won!
Great start to the 2008 Gravity East Series! Kenny and George did a fantastic job with a very well organized and run event despite some not so great weather.It was my first time at the resort and also my first DH race and despite a few bruises had a great time and missed the podium by one second(didn't help that I fell 3 times on my race run!).I will be back!
This isn't an official answer, so keep that in mind.....
I am guessing no. The equipment didn't seem to be functioning correctly. I was on the gravel road hoping to get a shot of a pro hitting 40mph in front of the sign.....but it simply didn't read on many riders that I saw pass it.
I saw one of the faster guys go through and it registered as 10 mph.....very wrong. The fastest I heard of (keep in mind, far from official) was either 36 or 37 mph.
