From JDD - see you kooks there!

Greetings MTB Race fans!

We’re gearing up for the first round of the 2010 Pro Gravity Tour on April 22-25 held in the picturesque town of Port Angeles, Washington. The kickoff to what its set to be an astounding national mtb gravity race series is going to take the Pro GRT to new levels! Not only will the event be close to some great cycling & snowboarding destinations, but it’ll be fairly easy to travel to, as it’s the weekend following the Sea Otter Classic! With a majority of the industry already in attendance, we’re expecting to see a GREAT turnout of athletes, teams & industry alike! Both Trek World Racing & Team Giant will be in attendance, not to mention many more!

Interested in attending? All of your questions, & logistical concerns can be found by visiting the Pro GRT website at

Port Angeles, where the mountains meet the sea, will also be the 2nd round of the NWCup. The venue is just 3 miles from town with ample lodging and dining opportunities. Dry Hill's trails are legendary for providing both a challenge and super fun, flowy trails. A large network of trails that all start and end in the same spot ensures a variety of courses for the riders throughout the series.

The Pro GRT will bring in top riders from across the country and world. Last year the attendance was over 400 racers for this event. As a promoter, this is both exciting and very challenging. Dry Hill is not a ski resort with existing services, so we set it up and tear it down for each event. Additionally, we have very limited level space for pit/tech use. It is very important to let us know exactly what you need as soon as possible so we can do our best to accommodate your needs. All space is first come, first serve.

Attached is a form to submit for Tech/Expo spaces. Please remit them to Scott Tucker at your earliest convenience at

The weekend of this event, there is also a Jazz Festival going on that draws a lot of out-of-towners, so we encourage you to make lodging arrangements as soon as you can.

Some things to consider:

-We will have at least one person on-site at all times for security purposes.

-The North Olympic Peninsula enjoys weather not typical of the Pacific Northwest. Often we are dry while surrounded by rain.

-There is no water or electric service on-site. You must be fully self-contained. Generators welcome.

-There will be a food-vendor on-site serving breakfast, lunch & dinner.

-The trails and venue area are behind a locked gate, so if you are wanting to pre-ride or set-up early, you need to let us know. The event is scheduled for Thursday the 22nd thru Sunday the 25th.

-The venue is only three miles from town and only one mile from the nearest campground.

Can’t wait to race? Port Angeles will host the first round of the NWCup this weekend (March 26-28, 2010). For more information check out

What's the shuttle story? I've heard in previous years it was in a closed, dark box van that people weren't too stoked about.

they run budget trucks, but its not too bad as long as it rains a little so there is no dust, and with the lights on you don't get too sea-sick.
