Cold? So…. Snow? So….. Go blow the dust off that DH gear and get your arse out to Windrock (Oliver Springs), TN for Race 2 of the Windrock Winter Series. The first race was held on the tamest trail that WR had to offer……Snakerock, where JD Swanguen took the top spot over NC’s young gun Jay Fesperman. I know that the East Coasters aren’t gonna let the lone West Coaster take the second and final round without a fight.

Are you ready? This is the big one folks! For the final round the crew is upping the anty with the full monty, Windmill!!!!….. top-o-the mountain to the bottom. It hasn’t posted on Strava yet, but it’s a 10+ minute run with what has to be about 2000 ft of elevation change. Bring your balls! You’re gonna need them.
