Season opener.

The Northeaset Downhill season has officially opened and Brooklyns from all over have been spotted representin' on the mountains.
After selling out of the first run, the latest SR6 is returning for its second season of lift-assisted trails after a long winter of pedaling singletrack.
You'll be seeing a whole lot of this frame over the summer, so keep your eyes peeled for updates on the big news (plus a long term KOWA review).

Our man Eric Hudson was up at Plattekill racing in brutal conditions for the season opener testing out the new BMW prototype DH rig. Check out the video action (Eric is sailing at 40 seconds in):

The time splits were close. It was Eric's first time with 8 inches in the rear, and he was shy of the podium by only 2/10 of a second. Way to go!
