    Independence Day Weekend and Downhill Racing at Plattekill Bike Park

    It’s time again for a Catskill area tradition. Plattekill Bike Park in Roxbury, NY is hosting the Eastern States Cup and the Gravity East Downhill Series’ from Friday July 2nd to Monday July 5th, 2010.

    Plattekill Bike Park pioneered both series and was the first venue in the east to support the sport of downhill mountainbiking. Plattekill has already received entries from South America, Europe and across the United States. The event will have an international feel to it and a World Class track for the racers. The mountain features some of the most unique terrain anywhere. Red Clay, loose shale, steep chutes, roots and lots of natural drops. The Cat 2-3 and the Pro/Cat1 courses use that terrain to the fullest. The courses are new with plenty of features to make the race fun and challenging for all.

    The event will have a festival feel with special events on Saturday. In addition to Downhill practice, Spooky Bikes will present The Great American Grassroots Dual Slalom, while Mad March Racing will be holding Downhill Racing Clinics and a unique footdown competition. Saturday’s dinner served in the lodge is a choice of Chicken Alfredo or Baked Ziti and Sausage. The dinner includes a fresh salad, garlic roll and a soda, all for $10.

    The Downhill race will be contested on Sunday. This event is the 4th Eastern States Cup Series race and the 3rd GES race of 2010. The Eastern States Cup is in it’s inaugural season with races at Plattekill Bike Park and Mount Snow, VT. The ESC is being embraced by racers for its convenient locations and the affordable racing fees. The ESC pays cash to the top three racers in Pro as well as Cat1 and Cat 2. There are great prizes being handed out throughout the season as well.
