2011 Gravity East Series at Seven Springs July 24th

I had a great time at Seven Springs Bike Park this past weekend.  A bunch of my friends and I went up to ride, party, watch some downhill racing, and take some pictures of the 2011 Gravity East, GES, #4 downhill race.  We got a few runs in on  Saturday, then Darrin and I went off to take some photographs of everyone taking their practice runs.  The race ran along the EC1 course, and is fast and flowy.  There are some great sections for photos, and some not so great sections...I shot in both ;).  Spent the night in the cabin townhouses near the swimming pool, had some beers, saw a couple skunks, and woke up early to enjoy the race.

We were cheering for some good friends in the race, and were happy to see them do well.
