Seven Springs (Pennsylvania)
Redemption! After a season-opener that featured a trip to the hospital, I was eager to get back in the groove of things at the second stop of the Gravity East Series. That's just what we got, too.
The bus was back in action again too. This time our group consisted of Rachel and three team riders - Nick, Ross, and myself. We showed up to the resort late on Friday night and slept in the parking lot. When we woke, Nick and I took a short walk to check out the layout. The feel was similar to that of the Massanutten Yeeha - a fairly large number of riders, spectators, and sponsor tents. The course was short and fun, featuring only one truly technical area - a short rock garden that would prove more daunting than expected. Other than that area, the course featured several jumps and a generally fast and flowy pace.
Ross's successful ride through the garden.
