The first real day of practice at the Pro GRT #2 at Plattekill, New York was sunny and dry with a plethora of top pros in attendance, including Bryn Atkinson and Tracy Moseley, looking to defend their titles after winning round one of the Pro GRT #1 in Port Angeles.

Photos and more info inside

The course is in great shape and tomorrow's practice and seeding run should be interesting. Most riders agreed that the track was good, Tracy Moseley - "the course was good, a little loose at the end, some turns were getting blown out by the end of the day, I like it!"

 The Banshee and KHS guys are rocking Dorado's. Couple of people are using Boxxers(think Rich Rude is? I know hes riding the new Demo..) I hope it rains a little tomorrow, makes Platty that much more fun to race in the mud. tup

 The 40 is the best dh fork out. The 2011 should be even better. That course is great, its nice to see Platty get its due.

 So what, 4 riders out of about 70 have 40's . . . . and ?

 2nd guy down, dont see that he has any 40s...
  • + 1
 top 4 riders outta 70 btw Razz

2nd guy down rides for trek, so he does have 40s also Smile

i didnt mean it in that kind of way though, more a kind of interesting way that 1, the winning racers were on 40s, and/or 2. that the article only shows riders riding on 40s. probably just fluke, but you never know Razz just my 2 cents...

 I would say POD's for all of them but that topless guy ruins it, or is it just me?
  • + 1
 It's not just you, but you need to know that if he didn't break his arm 3 weeks ago the topless guy would probably be on the podium. What do you have against a guy with his shirt off? If it was a girl you'd probably be stoked...
  • + 1
 LOL i dont have anything against this guy Smile If it was a girl then i would be stoked lol. Good point about saying he would be on the podium if he didn't brake his arm!
