Sun Peaks, BC - The lads have been busy out there pouring blood, sweat and tears into the Bike Park trails these past few weeks, shaping and grooming each swath of trail the big yellow machine rips apart. Our guests have asked for more intermediate, machine built trails and we've delivered with all new sections of Ain't No Scrubs, Wagon Wheel, and Home Run. We met up with park shredder Brett Power to check out the new work and snap a few photos.
Ain't No Scrubs has seen a major reroute around the long and low tables that once dominated the upper section. Drop into this blue trail and you'll find yourself railing a pile of fresh berms with a big 'ol roller hip, rejoining the previous trail just before the step-up. Check out Brett's steez in the header image!
Wagon Wheel has been COMPLETELY reworked as a machine built trail; wide, smooth, flowy and SUPER fun! Tons of rollers, berms, smaller jumps, and plenty of transitions between each. Access this previously hidden gem from 5 Mile Road, and try linking it up with Barn Burner for machine built bliss.
Homerun has also seen some serious lovin' this past week. This long and fast blue trail has been resurfaced after years of cumulative brake assault, with lots of new berms, rollers, and a few reroutes through the woods. The wooden bridges have been removed for the most part and those that remain have been flattened, so you can come at them quicker without getting bucked by the small lips we've all become familiar with.
Enjoy the new machine work out there and if you happen to pass the trail crew on your descent, toss a few high fives their way for all the hard work they've put into our riding pleasure this summer.
See you on the trails,
Sun Peaks Bike Park Team
