2017 Beech Mountain Pro GRT: Day 2, More Practice and Seeding

Day 2 of the Beech Mountain Pro GRT started like the day before as a 50/50 day of weather.  50% of the day was going to be sunny and the other 50% was going to be raining.  As our friend Eric Wever (Pisgah Produtions) would say "There's a 100% chance of weather today.  We're in the mountains.  It's going to do something somewhere." 

At least the rain gave us some good stuff for this video by Mountainbike Mania....

It stopped raining just in time for the start of the seeding runs....Peter Mills of Elevated Trail Designs clears the course.

Titus Nicholson would lay down the fastest time of the day with a 2:36.

Best Elk Horn and melody goes to Shrimper Khare.

Best attempt to balance a bike on your toe while looking for bills on the course goes to Rachel Kelleher.
