The Countdown is On!
Race Week will see plenty of battles out on the trails. Former champion Chris Sheppard will defend his title against top European riders like Thomas Dietsch and Marzio Daho while some of the world’s most acclaimed Gravity riders will duke it out on the downhills. New this year, select stages will feature the “Race Within the Race” where riders will be separately timed and ranked on some sweet descents!
Other riders will be out to support a cause. From the riders with Team Diabetes to Paul Chetwynd, raising awareness for Tsunami Relief in Japan, these riders will be out there making a difference.
