Just a few weeks after kicking off the North American DH race season at The Tennessee National for the first stop of the ProGRT Series, the Downhill Southeast Series is back for its 4th year and its first stop at Windrock. Not only were riders treated to a totally different track, on Reach Around, with primed berms and more turns than you can count but polar opposite conditions than the weeks prior. Instead of axle deep ruts and peanut butter mud it was 80 degree's, sunny skies and fast dry conditions.
One of the coolest things about being at Windrock for races is that even if it's a local race, it's home to a slew of international racers. Riding the same track as some of the pros you watch race around the world in a low key setting is a pretty good example of how to progress your skills.Rocks were getting slick with all the dustThe GROM race on Saturday was awesome. Tons of people came from practice right over to the finish of the green trail to cheer on riders.
