The tires hit the dirt at the Pro GRT in Windrock, Tennessee, and riders just can't get enough. #USDH
The morning of the first DH practice session of the 2017 Pro GRT greeted riders with blue skies and sunshine. You could almost hear the Allman Brothers' "Blue Sky" drifting through the tress. Eager faces were shining through helmets, and bikes were gleaming, ready to be tarnished with coal-mined, history-laden dirt from an exciting track.

The pace was high right from the start, and stayed pinned all day with riders only getting faster. Lines were sorted, blue grooves established. The day finished with resounding exultations of stoked, everyone agreeing that the track was one for the ages. As the sun set, clouds were lingering which showered heavy rain in the late hours of the night. As competitors went to sleep that night, the fast, dry, fun course was now in an uncertain state for seeding on Friday. Soak in the sun of DH practice and stay tuned for a weekend of great downhill racing in the U.S.
