CRESTED BUTTE, CO – Today, Big Mountain Enduro released the course maps for all three days of the 5th stop at Crested Butte, including two stages at Evolution Bike Park in addition to six backcountry stages.
KEYSTONE, CO – Our friend Andy Demaline of Downhill Colorado has been running recon in the Rockies for us, and when he gave us the scoop opening weekend at Keystone Bike Park, trail crews hinted at some significant updates, including some work on TNT. The trail has been closed in recent weeks with crews hard at work, so Andy decided to check in and see what was in store. It looks as though everyone's favorite technical Colorado riding destination is building some massive flow features.

WINDHAM, NY — The Windham Bike Park officially opened recently, for the first time ever. Although it's known as the famed one and only U.S. stop of the UCI World Cup, up until recently, the resort was not open to the public for downhill mountain biking. Although the steep and technical World Cup downhill tracks are what come to mind for most mountain bikers, in this POV video, we get a look at Batavia Skill, a new flow trail.
WINDHAM, NY – On July 10 Windham Mountain Resort celebrated the grand opening of its lift-serviced Mountain Bike Park of downhill trails for pro and intermediate- level riders, a skills park, and a pump track.
MAMMOTH LAKES, CA — New USAC National Champions were crowned last weekend at Mammoth Mountain Bike Park following plenty of dry, dusty action. The track was slightly different this year, with some rocks pulled and jumps added to make times faster. The speeds some racers carry is quite terrifying and with everyone turning up the speeds that tiny bit, there was plenty of carnage.
CHARLEMONT, MA – When we found out that Berkshire East was opening a lift served bike park in Massachusettes and hiring Gravity Logic, Inc., to do the dirty work, we knew the Northeast was stepping it up a notch. Thunder Mountain Bike Park opened officially over the 4th of July weekend, and Teton Gravity Reserach's Gunnar Waldman was there to get first impressions.
ANGEL FIRE, NM – The historic Chile Challenge returned to Angel Fire Bike Park this year, this time as the third stop of the Pro GRT. More than 200 racers made the pilgrimage to the small town in Northern New Mexico last month, and when the dust settled on the classic World Cup track, our freinds at MTB Mania had captured the action. We got a sneak peak earlier, but the full episode is finally ready. So sit back, relax, open a cold one and press play.
