About the Eastern States Cup
The Eastern States Cup Mission is to ensure the future of down hill mountain bike racing on the East Coast. There are two main partners in the sport, racers and venues. The ESC works to bring racers and venues together, listen, learn their concerns and act accordingly. The ESC offers a format that they will both be happy with, insuring that Downhill Mountain Bike Racing will continue.
To the racers the ESC offers a variety of venues, great courses and reasonable race fees. At the same time the ESC will offer high quality racing including USAC State and Regional Championships. The ESC will concentrate on keeping the venues within a reasonable geographical area to minimize travel expenses.
The ESC will offer venues an event that is profitable and easy to manage. The ESC will introduce a dedicated group of riders and racers to the venues at each race. The ESC strives to ensure a welcome return to each venue for years to come.
