During Beech Mountain Resort’s two year run hosting the US Gravity National Championships, the staff has been working in parallel to bring an open bike park back to the state of North Carolina. This past weekend the resort would bring that plan into reality opening up Saturday August 18 to anyone that wanted to ride DH or access the XC trails of the Emerald Outback. The weekend would then be topped off on Sunday with Race 2 of 3 for 2012.

With the light at the end of the tunnel shining ever so brightly for the biggest race in the US, the US Gravity Nationals, Team BGB-MK returned to what we like to call our “home track” for the first DH race of the season at Beech Mountain Resort. Over a 150 riders would also make the trek from as far away at Illinois, Texas, and Florida
to get some invaluable track time for that race we all see in the horizon.
All based in the Carolina’s, Team BGB-Mountain Khakis teamed up with Sam Anderson, Chris Annesi and Jacob Teer from Dirt Passion (www.dirtpassion.com) to bring you this short film. Enough talk……. grab your favorite beverage, get comfortable on your couch, and we’ll let the video speak for us. Hope you enjoy [...]
