U.S. National Downhill at Mountain Creek

5/27/2022 : sicklines

The 2022 USA Cycling National Downhill series is short this year and round #2 kicks off this weekend at Mountain Creek Bike Park in Vernon, NJ.

Round #1 at Windorck Bike Park had some weather roll in and shake things up a bit and Mountain Creek is host to round #2.

Last weekend, the Downhill South East hosted a race at Mountain Creek ahead of the National and riders were enjoying that race course quite a bit. Neko Mulally took the win there.
