Massanutten DH Race Recap and Photos

McGAHEYSVILLE, Virginia (derailedonline.com) Despite the weather and rain, 2008 Massanutten Yee-Ha was a great event. Want to give a hats-off to the promoters, race organizers, and Massanutten staff for putting on yet another stellar event for the first race of the 2008 Gravity East Series.

All total, 234 racers showed up to test their body and bikes against the once UCI World Cup course at Massanutten Ski Resort. The slick conditions caused for numerous wrecks and a couple injuries. Fastest time of the day (3:22.66) was put down on the scoreboard by Jurgen Benenke who ironically raced the Massanutten in 1997 during the UCI World Cup where he got second with a time of 4:28.96. If you are curious, here are the results from the 1997 UCI WC at Massanutten.
