Get Dirty :: Beast of the East Pro GRT


This weekend, top mountain bikers from around the world are competing in the USA Cycling Pro Gravity downhill event "The Beast of the East" at the Killington Bike Park.

Competitors will battle it out on the brand new Goat Skull trail at Ramshead Mountain for this USA Cycling sanctioned event.
