Cranksgiving Super D - South Carolina
Paris Mountain, SC played host to the annual Cranksgiving Super D race last weekend. Rider's from across the southeast took advantage of Saturday's relatively mild weather to get some end of season gravity racing in on the fast, flowing trails at Paris Mountain. Junior World Cup DH regulars Luca and Walker Shaw (Specialized) dominated the men's race, with Chris Wyatt putting in a strong run to take third.
In the women's race, Charlotte, NC native Caroline Westray (Liv/Giant) took a big win over Debbie Gillespie. Cyclocross specialist turned enduro ripper Megan Korol came in a strong third.
All proceeds from the race went to support Upstate SORBA, which recently announced plans to put in over six miles of brand new mountain bike trails at a nearby site this winter.
