Gravity Fest Comes To Catawba!
It's coming this weekend, the Catawba Gravity Fest, the 4th stop on the Maxxis Southeast Super Series. This Saturday, August 21st, the southeast's top downhillers will be at Historic Tuckaseegee Park (a.k.a Catawba Riverfront Park). Two events will highlight the thrilling action filled day of gravity events.

Dual is a cross between dual slalom and four-cross. Basically the dual slalom course will be turned into a head-to-head course with one larger lane, as opposed to the two lanes in dual slalom. After qualifying, pairings will be set and a head-to-head single elimination bracket will determine the winner.

At 3:00PM, the downhillers will take to the short but tricky downhill course of the Catawba Gravity Fest. Top honors will be determined by taking the best of two runs on the fast course.

Registration will open at 9:00AM with Dual qualifying at 11:00AM.

Thursday, we will be at the park getting the dual course ready. The downhill course is pretty much ready to go, just a few minor areas to work. If you would like to help with the courses, a crew is heading to Catawba around lunch on Thursday. Come on out.

The Charlotte Mountain Bike Series Race will head to Col Francis Beatty for the last time during the 2004 season. Come on out and join the fun. For info, check out
