Stumbled across this from the local Granby newspaper. $25,000 purse for a gravity stage race at SolVista in 2011.

(nice photo depicting a gravity race, LOL)

A quick call to Matty Thompson (SolVista's Bike Park Director) netted this official quote:
“I need to clarify that we don’t have specific commitments from anyone in the bike industry yet, but will be working with lots of companies to make the Triple DHip a fun, unique experience.  As soon as the town budget becomes official, we’ll have a press release with specific details.  I’m encouraged and excited about how everyone is rallying around this event.  We look forward to making it very special for both pros and amateurs alike.  We’re not content with only offering a large pro purse; the Triple DHip will be heavy on prizes for the amateur classes.  This is a fantastic harbinger of things to come for us in 2011.  The Triple Dhip isn’t all we’re working on.  Stay tuned.” - Matt Thompson, SolVista Bike Park Director
