2012 Gravity Slave Chainless DH Race


Photo: Trent Bona | A big West Elk Project congratulations to all the winners in yesterday’s Gravity Slave Chainless race at Evolution Bike Park. At the end of the day Nicole Digate and Red Mcintosh took home the hand-made trophies for Expert Women and Men respectively. Racers had no chain so pedaling was not an option as they pumped, flowed and sometimes ran their way through three very different DH courses, always using the same bike for each trail. As always, it was a laid back, fun-filled atmosphere as everyone enjoyed some friendly competition beneath the fall foliage. Thanks  to Crested Butte Mountain Resort and the Evolution Bike Park crew for putting on the event and maintaining such an awesome riding experience throughout the Summer.
