Waterville Valley Resort set to offer ‘Most Spectacular Bike Race’ in September
The brainchild of HQ Entities’ founder Mark Rodgers, a South Californian with lots of experience in professional mountain biking, the Pinnacle will feature a decidedly unusual format: rather than each racer coming down individually, the racers will come down in groups of ten.
One hundred of the world’s top riders have been invited to participate in the Pinnacle, which will be held rain or shine at Waterville Valley Resort on Sept. 19 and 20, and which will be webcast live by Pinkbike, which is a leader in sports-action webcasting. The race will also be filmed for broadcast on television sometime in October.
“Waterville Valley Resort is very excited to be hosting the Pinnacle Bike Championship, one of the most elite downhill mountain bike races in North America,” said Sununu. “This event will be unlike anything many people in New England have ever seen. It will be an incredible weekend of outdoor entertainment.”
“That first time walking down the course, he (Rodgers) was just really impressed by the contours, rock and dirt. You could tell,” said Sununu, “that he had found the perfect spot.”
