Press Release: Downhill Southeast
Downhill Southeast is proud to announce our 2021 race schedule today. This past summer we saw record turnouts for each venue, lots of new riders, and competitive racing. The introduction of two racecourses allowed us to offer a fun welcoming experience to new racers while maintaining the technically challenging race courses that our advanced riders expect. We partnered with Zone 4 timing to provide live timing, split times, and live results which helps to keep a punctual race program. Downhill Southeast is a well oiled machine, and we plan to further refine that at our events in 2021.
Quality racecourses shape the next generation, and we are working closely with each venue to offer a fun and progressive amateur course along with a challenging pro course that will give our advanced riders valuable race experience. To build on that, we've added some new categories for the upcoming season that will keep riders in close competition, and encourage more youth participation. Our largest numbers were in our junior categories and that's a great sign for the future. 2021 Race Schedule
