It is the only event in the USA that racers can compete in these three gravity disciplines on the same weekend! E*thirteen started on the East Coast and we are pumped to be returning to our roots and working with the ESC to support the growing Enduro, Super D and DH race scene. We’re also stoked to support the Eastern Cup Series by providing the 2013 ESC $1000 E*thirteen Junior Cup Championship. We realize that the junior racers today will be the Pros tomorrow and we want to help them realize their full potential." E*thirteen by the Hive design and manufacture class-leading wheels, pedals, cranksets, chainrings, bottom brackets, drivetrain protection, and chain retention products for discerning cyclists worldwide.
Thursday and Friday will be practice days for all events; the first race on tap is Saturday’s inaugural POC ESC Enduro Series race. The enduro race consists of 5 timed sections and 4 untimed transfer sections. The untImed transfer sections will guide racers to the start of each timed section. The timed sections will be mostly downhill but to get to them the racers will have to earn it by peddling. The Enduro race will feature 20-30 minutes of racing and take about 3 – 4 hours to complete the course. The ESC is excited to be bringing an enduro series to the East Coast, you won’t want to miss the enduro action. Fastest Amateur in the uphill transfer between Sections 3-4 will win a FOX DOSS Adjustable Seatpost! ($400Value)
Super D will start the racing action on Sunday morning. The ESC Super D’s begin with a mass start by racer’s class. Some classes will have over 20 racers battling it on the track at the same time. Super D racing is heart-pumping action that pushes racers to their limits. The Super D course will be open, fast and have at least one uphill section to further push racers. The Super D track is designed to maximize passing opportunities and offer close, exciting racing.
The feature event of the weekend is the action packed downhill race. The DH race will be contested on Plattekill’s newest ProGRT track, the racers asked for this demanding track again. Expect steep tight sections, big drops and huge jumps. This race course is quickly becoming known as the best DH track in the East. Racers will not want to miss surfing the famed plattekill shale in the steepest sections!
