Minnaar and Neethling to race US Pro Gravity Tour

South Africa’s two top downhill riders Greg Minnaar and Andrew Neechling will be racing in the first round of the US Pro Gravity Tour (US Pro GRT) in Port Angeles, Washington later this month on April, 24-25, just one week after many of the sport’s stars race at California’s Sea Otter Classic. There are five stops on this tour which draws a top-quality field of downhillers.

Trek World Racing is sending a full roster of international talent including Tracy Moseley of Great Britain, Andrew Neethling of South Africa, Justin Leov of New Zealand, and new signing Neko Mulally of Pennsylvania.

Veteran Jared Rando of Australia will lead the charge for Giant along with his new teammates for 2010: Brit Danny Hart and American Duncan Riffle.

Yeti Fox racing is bringing its World Cup podium finisher Aaron Gwin as well as Joey Schusler and Chris Boice, and Greg Minnaar (Santa Cruz Syndicate) and Bryn Atkinson, Jill Kintner and Lars Sternberg (all Transition Racing) will also be competing.

The race will be run on non-ski area trails at Dry Hill, three miles outside of Port Angeles.
