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


Diamond-plain

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....
