This past weekend was the first found of the Eastern States Cup at the new and revived Mountain Creek Bike Park. In both Cat 1 and the Pro class we had over 30 of the fastest guys in the nation to race. This race was really going to show all of us if our winter training is going to pay off... and it did in a big way! Tim had a crash in his run but felt fast and confident for next weekend, he finished 32nd. Dylan has been working really hard on fitness, with this being his first season as a pro he is just trying to settle in and feel like a pro. He had a big crash in practice and was not able to get as many practice runs in has he wanted, Dylan ended up in 21st. All things considered that is a great result. Gavin is still getting up to speed after a broken hand from last season. His confidence is really starting to get there. With a run he felt he could improve on he finished 5th! And then we have Phil. Phil let is really hang out there for his race run and made a few major mistakes, you will see this in the video, but he kept it rubber side down and smashed his way into a 3rd not far off the likes of Justin Leov and Aaron Gwin. Willem races Cat 1 19-29. His run had a few spots where he knew he could make up some time, but still finished 5th in a class of over 30. All in all, it was a great weekend for the team and we are all really exited to race Plattekill next weekend.
