Heath throws down in Plattekill

Bourqe wins women's round of Gravity East Series

Rockets' red glare and bombs bursting in air can best describe the Gravity East Series racing at the Plattekill Bike Park during this past Fourth of July holiday weekend

With a stacked elite field, the outcome was anyone's guess. In the men's race, Chris Heath (KHS Factory) threw down the fastest time of the day followed closely by Ethan Quehl (East Coast Gravity Pros) and Gavin Vaughan (Team Giant HBG) who got the race run of the weekend after injuring his hand in practice Saturday.

15-year-old Richie Rude (Specialized Allride Academy) was fast enough for the fourth spot with Jason Memmelaar (Team Giant HBG) right behind him rounding out the top five.

In the elite women's race, Dawn Bourque (Rocky Mountain Bikes) won ahead of Karen Eagan (Highland) and Joanna Petterson (Nema Maxxis).
