US Cup organizers announced two measures that will support gravity racing in the US in 2009 and 2010.
First, the US Cup will run a gravity specific racing series within the US Cup for 2010. Details are still in the works, but gravity riders will have a comprehensive series to crown both pro and amateur champions in 2010, much like the US Cup series is offering cross country racers in 2009.
Second, the next US Cup stop in Fontana, California, will provide racing opportunities for gravity racers as well as cross country racers. The March 28-29 event will double as the second round of the Kenda Cup West and the opener of the US Pro Cross Country Tour (ProXCT).
The first 250 riders registered in each discipline will receive a complimentary rider swag bag with goodies provided by Kenda and other sponsors.
