The series was contested at two of the Northeast’s premier bike parks, five races at Plattekill Mountain, NY and three races at Mount Snow, VT. Mount Snow and Plattekill are pioneers in the sport both having held races since the beginning of the sport in the late 1980’s.
USAC Pro racers Oliver Levick took home $250 and Gravity Project rider Erik Gosselin took home $100 for 2nd and 3rd in the series. Another $1000 was split among the Amateur Champions, this is in addition to over $3000 that was paid to amateurs throughout the season. The ESC is the richest Amateur Downhill Series in the United States and the only eastern series to award the prestigious USAC Regional Championship Medals.
