Boulder City, NV – The 2015 Winter Gravity Series at Bootleg Canyon gets underway this weekend with an event inspired by local Bootleg Canyon legend Brent Thomson, who passed away in 2009. Brent was the man who initially brought Bootleg Canyon to life, and back in the day, it was Brent who hosted "The Gathering," drawing riders from all over the country to ride the epic desert trails. Each winter we honor Brent as we make our pilgrimage to Boulder City, NV to be a part of the Bootleg Canyon Gravity Series, and we give thanks to our friend Downhill Mike for helping to carry on the passion through his own dedication to the sport of mountain biking.
