Neko Mulally Announces 2019 Downhill Southeast Race Series, Tennessee National Pro GRT & Enduro
@Sugarbrad: And let me be perfectly frank. That resort screwed me, Jeremy, Matt, Steven, Brady, Mueller,,Randy, motomike and roughly another half dozen buddies. We gave them free labor, free tools, materials, layout and design for a DH National course and busted our butts to do it. What we did would have cost 5 figures from one of the companies that ironically a few of the guys who helped eventually went on to start and run. They didn't give ANY of us a single free lift ticket, a single dollar out of the coffers and they get to reap the benefits of that work and not once even so much as an email of thanks from the management or ownership. I am not ENTITLED to anything. I am a DUMBASS for letting them use our enthusiasm and effort freely to their gain! Don't throw me under the bus brother. You and me should have zero beef.

@Sugarbrad: Races are not profitable on that day. But you and I and every racer out there values a single race at a resort far more than just a bike park with zero races. Riders and racers ALL value a resort willing to put on a race weekend, elevate the status of the venue in their minds and are more likely to frequent the venue if the value added benefit of a race is added. It is not bitching when I am stating black and white common sense. I'm in marketing, you're in marketing. There are things businesses do that aren't profitable in the moment but are made up for over time. Example: DH races at Wolf Laurel the 3 years we had them directly mirrored increased non-peak ski season ticket sales. The GM flatly attributed it to our DH races creating additional media and awareness of the resort itself. They changed nothing about their ad budget...just DH races. If Sugar wants gravity riders to believe in their new interest in mountain bikers, they do the things that demonstrate they LIKE us. We know they want our money...but do they care about us? I go to marketing events for my biz all the time and "lose money" chatting and learning about business people in my.area, but that goodwill effort to show I care and am.willing to give of my time freely, it comes back to me in dollars later. I'm 100% right. ????

We both know sugar and their management far too well to expect them to be part of anything useful anymore

@avcb: exactly. My Guides scream during the start of a shuttle lap as they burn off the prior run.
