all most people think of snowshoe resort for skiing and snowboarding but it's actually now getting international attention for another adrenaline rushing sport downhill mountain biking the United States and to snowshoe Nikko Mullaly live in Asheville North Carolina snowshoes special for me because I grew up racing here the first season I ever race downhill was in 2006 and I did all the Powerade serious races here and I feel like racing at snowshoe kind of shaped me into the rider that I am I'm good at this type of terrain because this is what I thought downhill was when I first started riding having an event of this caliber is going to create so much excitement that it's going to be awesome for our region throw down a lazy Dakota Norton and I'm from Knoxville Tennessee I just think that riding just this gnarly terrain this is so fun to just like have it be a place that the faster you go the better it is bits of it are like mom say nan Nico said it was a lot like havi al unfortunately I'd never got the opportunity to race there but track overall it's really well-rounded and it has steep bits as chunky bits and it has some stuff that's gonna be really fast and fun to ride so I think it's got a little bit everything so I'm really excited about the course it says a lot about our area that we've got so many fast racers from the south we've got year-round riding and some of the best technical terrain in the country I think here at snowshoe with the ski lift you know in the old resorts starting at the top and I think that everyone's gonna have to walk down the track to see the finish so you kind of gotta earn your keep I think it's gonna lead to having a lot of people on track for the race and that's really exciting for me because I think it's gonna be really loud in the environment here at snowshoes is gonna be awesome and then everybody will take the lift up and having the resort right here I think it'll be a big party after you have a chance to come out here and watch the racing it's gonna be an awesome time it's gonna be a lot of fast riders and a big party in the woods you got to make it [Laughter]
