Race Report: Gravity Project Rd4 @ QECP
Race Report: Gravity Project Round4 at QECP 1st June
QECP trail collective host Gravity project on their home turf. This was sure to be an interesting race, with Gravity Project carrying out lots of work to the track this year, adding a whole new top section, which as tight and challenging.
The track started a bit slick in practice with lots of riders struggling with the rock garden, root of doom & drop combo.
Through the day the track started drying out. You could see riders getting quicker as the conditions improved and they where getting used to the features in the track.
After lots of practice/crashing it was time for the race runs.
There were less crashes in the first round of race runs.
By the final race run, the track had dried considerably, lots of very quick time were being put in.
It was a great race, fun had by all. Gravity Project put on a really good event and we hope to be hosting Rd4 again next year.
