This is Munnsville – Home of Gravity Fest
2015 marks the 10th running of the Munnsville Gravity Fest. This year promises to be a star studded, gravity powered free-for-all featuring gravity sport’s most famous “village”. Once again, Dr No Racing will be coordinating the competition and wrangling the racers down East Hill Road.
Throughout the years Gravity Fest’s focal point has always been Crash Corner. And for good reason… After hurtling down a breath taking straight at top speed, riders must put on the brakes and negotiate a wild hairpin in front of a screaming crowd. In the past there have been bands, booze, Beagle and a big bucket at that corner, all behind the hay bales on Fred’s front lawn.
During the early years at Gravity Fest, it was all about street luge. The number of street luge riders back then was greater than the field of skaters. In fact, there were all manner of craft going down that hill in the early years. Check out the parade run during the 2005 Gravity Fest:
This will be the year to check out the Munnsville Gravity Fest. Gravity Fest 10 will draw gravity sport legends from when the X Games were awesome as well the current champions of the downhill scene. It will be a jammed packed celebration of all things GRAVITY.
The Munnsville Gravity Fest will be held on July 31 to August 2, 2015 in Munnsville, New York. For more info on this year’s race go to Official Gravity Fest X Facebook page.
