Help get exposure

If you are interested at all in DH racing, go to the link below and cast your vote to have Dh added to the Gravity Games. The poll is at the bottom of the Gravity Game's page.

I think it would be sweet to get dh back on the tube. More exposure, more sponsors and more interest will definitly bring more money to our sport.

Lets just hope they do it properly and not make us look like reckles idiots that have no skill. Back in the '90s they tried showing it in the Winter X games on snow. All it did was make us look like morons. Every one was sliding all over the place and looked like they did not know how to ride.
