 Great stuff! Awesome weekend! Props to Neko, Sean, Callie, Carolyn, Joe, Jamie, Mickey, the park, USAC, all the volunteers, all the racers, all those in Windrock's history and everyone else I forgot. So stoked to have a National event at the place where bikes go to die. Looking forward to the future.

 Such a killer opener guys! Thanks Neko, Sean, Trill Will, Pisgah Productions, Windrock, all the shuttle drivers and course volunteers, GoJamMedia, MTB Mania and Icon Media Asheville for the coverage, and everyone who contributed and came to race! Big things coming from the southeast! Stoked on DH 2017.

 Nary a 4 wheeler or rock crawler pic?

Great job @seanleader and Neko, Patrick Tait, Matt Haynes, and all the grinders digging the dirt over the years at Windrock to keep such a long standing DH zone up and running...and even moving forward to bigger and better things.

 @arnoldtm2: is he running I9 goods in World Cup this year? Then I can say that I actually use a product the big boys throw down on.
  • + 1
 @slayersxc17: Yes he is, they are local for him and he will run those dt's with i9 hubs and spokes. I rode with him first day he had the new bike and they were the stock e13's, but his brother told me they were getting him the i9's built up
