Huge shout out to everyone that came out for the 2013 ProGRT race stop at Plattekill this past weekend... THANKS for your support! Despite the 30 degree temps and rain (and snow) that fell for much of the weekend, a great event was had. Congrats to Neko Mulally ofTrek World who took home the first place win in the Pro Men category with a finishing time of 2:15.33 and to Anne Galyean racing for Integrity who took home the fastest Pro Women time of 2:59.81.

We're working overtime getting geared up for next weekend's BIG ProGRT DH race here at Plattekill. The course is being prepped, tweeked, raked and dialed for the event. We just finished the finish line area and added an all new bridge take off as an alternative to years past wallride.
This race is gonna be a GOOD ONE! Pro/Cat1/Cat 2 will all share the same course with several "optional" go around sections and the Cat 3 (beginners) will have their own separate easier run from the top...don't miss it! Next weekend. Plattekill ProGRT. Race Sunday May 26. Mountain open for rec riding/race practice Thursday May 23 thru Monday (Memorial Day Holiday) May 27. Race is open to all ages & abilities.
MTB Season begins at Platty. Since opening day for biking, it's been been full speed ahead with trail work here at Plattekill. We've got TONS of work going on all over the mountain on our bike trails as we are full speed ahead working on an ALL NEW course for the Plattekill ProGRT Downhill race coming to Plattekill May 26. In addition, we've had a small army out on the slopes working on an ALL NEW BEGINNER BIKE TRAIL from the top of the mountain to the base. This much needed trail will make for a real nice easy way down for new mountain bikers to the mountain and people that are looking for a fun, easy, flowy recreation ride from the top of the mountain. Approximately 2 miles long, this new run will consist of a nice addition to the mix. Stay tuned for more!!!
