Sugar Mtn Drops NMBS Race

BANNER ELK, NC ( - The national once scheduled for Sugar Mtn in 2008 (July 5- July 6), is now off the calender. Sugar Mtn. has hosted a NMBS national for the past two years. As we have just heard from the PR spokesperson at Sugar, there will be no DH racing at Sugar this year. The lifts will continue to run as usual in the summer and the trails will be open to bikes but they are not going to do any racing whatsoever in 2008. They stated they are going to take a fresh look at hosting events in 2009.

So where does that leave the NMBS schedule? There were eight events on the schedule with only seven of those hosting DH races - now there are only six DH races on the schedule.
