Ranging from American Jill Kintner to the Czec Republic's Michal Prokop, the Jeep ® King of the Mountain Series (www.jeepsports.com) unveiled its 2006 competition line-up this week.
The Jeep King of the Mountain Series, features 16 of the world's top riders competing head-to-head for a share of the richest cash payout in the sport, topping $100,000, and the keys to a new 2007 Jeep Compass. Each event in the 2006 season, spanning July through September, will be televised to a national audience on CBS Sports .
The series is comprised of three races scheduled July 8 in San Luis Obispo, Calif, Aug. 12 in Elkhart Lake, Wis and Sept. 3 in Beaver Creek, Colo.
27 year old David Vazquez (Maxxis-MSC) won his fourth National Championship last weekend, winning the Downhill Spanish title in Bilbao, and also picking up a handy silver medal in the 4X as well, beating many pre-race favourites.
The national championship downhill course was brand new for the event, contained man made obstacles - like big berms, jumps and a big bridge to cross - but was short and required pedaling. Vasquez was the only rider to go under 2mins 30secs all day and took a well deserved win.
