WINTER PARK, CO – A large crew of downhill mountain bikers attended a public open house meeting last Monday evening, June 22, to learn about plans for Phase 2 of Trestle Bike Park's proposed expansion.

Hood, where they were greeted by favorable weather, unseasonably early flowers, and one of the best backdrops around. The terrain at Skibowl's mountain bike park has a lot to offer.

ROSSLAND, BC – Alright, maybe it doesn't have anything to do with an actual bike park, but this short edit of 10-year-old Bodhi Kuhn sending gaps in British Columbia is just too good not to share. Bodhi bombs Joy Division, a jump line on Woopidydoo in Rossland, BC, looking super smooth and finishing with a 30-foot stepdown road gap. Even the camera man, aka dad, was audibly impressed, letting out a "Yeee-haw!"
