Our Top Pick Event for the month of October is the Thailand Gravity Series Race #2 in Suphanburi. This event is the second race in the 2016 series of four (4) Downhill and Freeride races. Competitors will accumulate points over the four races of the series and be awarded overall places (and prizes) based on their results. Read the race results from Race #1 in this series here.
In the past, the Thailand Gravity Series has produced fun and well-organized events for the growing Downhill crowd in Thailand. Plenty of categories to choose from and an informative (and up to date) FaceBook page helped to make this event our top pick. And, the addition of a Freeride category being added to this year’s series also helped as the series generated a lot of interest from riders not fully committed to DH and the double-crown bikes required to compete.
