Plattekill Prepares for Junior-X Worlds Qualifier

ROXBURY, NY (derailedonline.com) - The Delta House Racing sponsored trail maintenance weekend was held this past Saturday and Sunday at Plattekill Mountain. Over 45 riders showed up from as far away as Canada to clear trails and build the Pro/Expert course for the first race weekend May 3-4 that will also include the Junior X World Qualifier. After a great day of working on the mountain in beautiful sunny 80 degree temps, the riders were on to the Delta House Racing world headquarters, right down the road from the mountain, for a great barbecue with lots of food and drink.
