“If you’ve had your eye on a new downhill or cross-country bike but want to try it out before you commit to buying one, Angel Fire Bike Park Demo Daze is a perfect weekend to try the latest bikes on our trails to see which suspension works best for your style of riding,” said Bike Park Manager Hogan Koesis in a release.

“While some mountains charge riders entrance fees, what’s great about this demo is our riders can come up and try out the gear all day long for the cost of a bike park lift ticket. The lift ticket will also include access to live music, tastings at the Brewfest tent and entrance to the Red Bull movie premiere that night that takes place outside under the stars.”

“Having Brett Tippie, also known as the Director of Good Times, here at our Demo Daze is a great way to kick off our summer mountain biking season,” explains Koesis. “He always offers riders expert advice and entertains all of us with his crazy stories and jokes. He’s the perfect addition to our Memorial Day Weekend event.”
