For the past 10 years the Maxxis Eastern States Cup has been ensuring the future of gravity mountain bike racing on the East Coast. The Maxxis ESC has hosted USA Cycling ProGRT's, EWS Continental Championships, EWS Qualifiers and the Race the World DH events during the Windam World Cup. Continuing our mission we will once again be back at Killington Bike Park for their awesome variety of trails. This event will be a Box Showdown event with our DH series competing on the same day at the same time. Last year we were close to 500 racers at our Box Showdown at Killington, with the addition of the qualifier status we expect even more fun.
For the EWS Qualifier at Killington the Maxxis ESC will be putting together a 6 stage race that utilizes a wide variety of terrain. The EWS Qualifier will use one gondola and one lift transfer, but racers should be prepared for a lot of pedaling on the other four transfers.
