Gravity Stage Racing Returns
More venues, New sponsors, Timing upgrades

Team Trail Party is hitting the road in 2020 and we're bringing our GSR format to more riders and bike parks. The goal: to make gravity racing more accessible to larger groups of riders and remove some of the stress that can detour riders from racing. The feedback from the 2019 season was incredible. We listened to the riders and made additions to make this season bigger and better.



Live Timing

Timing is crucial to any race. Therefore we push the boundaries of our Sportident system to maximize the experience and crank out as much information possible for the riders to look at and compare. This season we will be adding a little intensity for riders looking to challenge themselves. Racers will be able to come through and check times on a big screen near the lift throughout the day. We expect this to open a whole new level of strategy while remaining optional for the folks looking to catch a few good stages and retire to other trails in the bike park (or the cooler).

Venues
The 2020 season brings us back to all 4 of our amazing venues from the previous year: Pajarito, Purgatory, Angel Fire, and Tamarack. Over the winter we've been working hard to sign more great bike parks and we're very pleased to add Skypark at Santa's Village in California and Sunrise Resort in AZ to bring the Trail Party further west. We are constantly working to add more venues throughout the year. Be sure to follow our social media channels for updates and additions.



Pajarito

We kick off the season in Los Alamos NM with some of the steepest trails on the calendar

Paja is quickly becoming one of the most popular stops on the tour with its free camping and rugged terrain

Sponsors
Without our great group of sponsors last year the season would have never turned out as great as it did. The majority of them will continue to support us for this season and we've gained a few new exciting partners as well. Ride 100% will be joining Specialized as the title sponsors for this season and beyond. We're excited to work with such amazing companies that believe in the growth of Gravity Stage Racing as much as our other partners like Deity, Sensus, DIRT Components, and Fox Racing Also joining us this year is Fox Suspension and they'll be out at select TTP events this year to strut.

All info and early registration available soon HERE
