, Windrock Race – 2/17/2013

There’ll be another race at Windrock this weekend! If you’re near Oliver Springs, TN you should swing by to check out the awesome terrain that Windrock has to offer. GoJamMedia has sent through some details on the race weekend that you can check out inside!

Go blow the dust off that DH gear and get your arse out to Windrock (Oliver Springs), TN for Race 2 of the Windrock Winter Series. This is the big one folks! The first race was held on the tamest trail that WR had to offer……Snakerock, where JD Swanguen took the top spot over NC’s young gun Jay Fesperman. I know that the East Coasters aren’t gonna let the lone West Coaster take the second and final round without a fight.
