The USA Cycling Pro GRT tour kicks off on Friday March 15 thru Sunday March 17, 2013 at Bootleg Canyon in Boulder City, Nevada with the Reaper Madness DH & SD. Pros will be competing for the $2,500.00 cash purse and Pro GRT medals while the amateurs will be vying for medals and prizes. All will be trying to qualify for the Nationals at Angel Fire, New Mexico. The Super D race will be held on Saturday while the main Downhill race will be on Sunday. With shuttles starting on Friday, there will plenty of opportunities for open practice on both race courses.

Race promoter, Downhill Mike and the Whiteface Mountain Bike Park crew have high expectations for this event. Their most recent event, The Nevada State DH Champs at the same location saw a record size field with over 260 athletes! Downhill Mike says they are planning on offering a new race course for this Pro GRT race that has not been raced on since the late Brent Thompson hosted races at Bootleg Canyon over 10 years ago. Race organizers say "Expect speed, flow and a longer course". The exact race course will not be disclosed prior to the race, to make sure the locals do not have the advantage of extra open practice.

    Please tell me we're racing Ginger! That would put the race on the map! The last race was sick aside from snapping my chain out of the start, i'm coming back for vengence!

    Nope. The Pro/Category 1 male will be different and more gnar than previous pro/expert courses. You are somewhat close on the other course, but not really. We will surprise all for sure!

    I'm excited to see what the course will be! Thanks for the awesome race with quick results last weekend, it was much nicer than all the other Bootleg races I've done.
