QUEENSTOWN, NZ –When we found our good friend and MTBparks ambassador Michael Moore was headed down to Kiwi town for Crankworx Rotorua, we jumped at the opportunity for live coverage of our first international event.

DONNELLY, ID – Tamarack Resort will resume full operations of its bike park operations this summer for the first time in nine years.

New trails and features are also in the works, according to the resort.

More on that later, but for now, dig the details on Crankworx Rotorua in the press release below.

Today our sport lost an athlete, an ambassador, a pioneer – and to many – a friend. Kelly McGarry has passed away in Queenstown, NZ. “McGazza” was riding at Skyline Queenstown on the Ben Lomond trail, which is accessed from the Skyline Gondola when he apparantly collapsed on the trail.
