The eighth and final round of the Maxxis Eastern States Cup Intense Downhill Series brings us back to the Northeast's ultimate proving grounds, Plattekill Mountain. The ESC crew have brought back portions of the 2014 ProGRT course, including the infamous Dangerous Grounds chute. The track is quintessentially Platty, featuring some of the steepest, most raw and rowdy terrain the mountain has to offer. With several racers from each class in the hunt for the series overall, double points in this race mean you have to leave everything you've got on the track if you want to take home a championship jersey. After crowning two Vermonters in the Pro Enduro classes at Thunder Mountain Finals, two more would make it a clean sweep for the Green Mountain State in 2019. Keep scrolling for all the action from the final race of the year!
