Gravity National Champs 2013 (Angel Fire, NM) - Armen Davis

 
Gravity National Champs 2013 (Angel Fire, NM) - Armen Davis
 
August 09, 2013 - 
 

Another great weekend of racing!  The track was classic Angel Fire – rough, fast, and loose.  It was probably one of the most fun courses offered in the Rocky Mountains. Each day of practice offered different conditions because of either overnight rain or being blown-out from the day before.  So in that aspect, it was a great test of the riders’ abilities.  On Saturday, I was very fortunate to be able to ride with fellow Five Ten athlete Troy Brosnan around the mountain.  It was an awesome opportunity to be able to ride with one of the best riders in the world!  On race day, I had clean practice runs and a pinned race run, landing me in second place!  Some 15 unlucky racers came down with a blown tire or wheel due to the high-speed rock gardens.  Angel Fire put on an awesome weekend with a great track!
