Madison County Gravity Fest V
Munnsville, New York
About 30 miles east of Syracuse, in the rolling hills of New York lies the town of Stockbridge. In this town is the village of Munnsville. A quiet little community that has become the home of Gravity Fest. There is one stop light in the town, at the intersection with the state route and the road leading to the course.
Chill On A Swiss Hill
About an hour and a half south east of Zurich, as you enter the Swiss Alps, small villages and beautiful twisty roads liter the valley. About half way between Chur a medium sized town of about 10,000 people and Thusis with a population of about 2500 lies a nice twisty road.
Kill Hill Vol 2 Teufelsberg Rennen
This was a regional race in the Kill Hill series. It was held on Teufelsberg Hill, just outside of Berlin. This was an artificial built hill, that held a US listening post during the cold war (apparently in the early 60's it was also used as a ski hill!) The course is the little used access road up to the station. The road is overgrown with lots of debris along the edges.
Åre Mountain Games
Åre is a small ski resort in the middle of Sweden. Somewhere between 500 and 1000 people live there year round, but during winter time the population sky rockets. The village is nestled between a wide river and a steep mountain. The town was gearing up for the 2007 World Ski Championships, so most of the town was being rebuilt.
Demons of Downhill
Bainbridge is a one traffic light, one Dairy Queen town, on route 50 about an hour east of Cincinnati. Every year, towards the end of October a small street fair is held, called the Festival of Leaves. The festival has a lot of local crafts, a ton of food vendors, and some kiddie rides. Quite a lot of people check out the festival through out the weekend. Unfortunately none of them knew about the race. The festival is held to celebrate the turning of the leaves. I don't know if it was the warmer weather, but the leaves hadn't really started to change yet.
Chamrousse is a ski resort in the alps above Grenoble, France. The summer season is a slow time of year, but it is still a destination for picnicers, hikers, paragliders and tourists. The resort is split into two sections. The lower section, 1650, is a little busier as it has more restaurants as well as a gondola to the top.
