2012 USA Cycling Professional Mountain Bike Gravity Tour
Location: Northstar California Mountain Bike Park
From: Friday, August 03, 2012
To: Sunday, August 05, 2012
Time: All Day


In its fourth year, the 2012 USA Cycling Professional Mountain Bike Gravity Tour (Pro GRT) has expanded to six races and continues to raise the level of competitive gravity racing across the United States. As the country's premier gravity calendar, the Pro GRT aims to provide a consistent stage of international-caliber events for elite gravity racers to showcase their downhill skills.

The six stop series will begin April 26 - 29 in Port Angeles, Washington and wrap August 3 - 5 right here at the Northstar California Mountain Bike Park. Each of the six stops will offer series ranking points to top finishers, resulting in overall individual titles for professional men and women. The racers with the most points throughout the six-race series will be recognized as the best gravity athletes competing on U.S. soil.
