2011 USA Cycling Mountain Bike Gravity National Championships - at Beech Mountain!

This weekend, Beech Mountain Resort (formerly known as Ski Beech), hosts the 2011 USA Cycling Mountain Bike Gravity National Championships.  The resort aims to have this new course, along with their  other state-of-the-art Mountain Biking courses and facilities, fully open to the public by 2013; but for now, watching the top riders in the sport compete will be an exciting enough treat for visitors to the mountain this Saturday.

Here is a neat video (by Kristian Jackson) previewing the course in action, while giving us glimpses of all the work that went into its design and construction:
