Below is the proposed Gravity East Series Schedule for the 2007 season. This will be a series encompassing many of the different downhill & slalom/mtn cross events up and down the East Coast, from New England to the Carolinas!
This series has been a long while in the making and comes from loads of discussions over the past couple years between racers, promoters, and the folks at USAC. This series is designed to showcase the amazing variety of riding and elite level of racing on the East Coast to the global cycling world! East Coast Unity!

The plan is to have overall series cash purses for Pro & Expert categories and good prizes for the Beg/Sports. Best 7 of 11 races will count toward the overall. Promoters of these events will surely be stepping their courses and events up a couple notches for this series!
