USA National Gravity

You may have heard, but there’s another bike park under development in the area. The USA Cycling Gravity National Championships will descend on Beech Mountain Resort this September 23-25 and with that comes the beginning of a bike park. Pro racer and trail builder Christopher Herndon and crew are nearly finished with the race course and recently took it for a test ride. Here’s a first look:

This race course marks the beginning of an important addition to the high country. Over the next three years, Beech Mountain Resort plans to build the park, expand the xc trails, develop a rental program, and open a bike shop.The park will be designed for both advanced and beginning riders. Looks like we’re in for some fun.

More to follow.
