Summer is in full swing here at the Bike Park, and life is good. We had a record turn out for this year’s North American Enduro Cup with over 300 racers in attendance. We were able to put them to work riding in the new upper section of War Gerbil.
After the race the trail crew went back in and worked it some more. The result is we are nearly where we want to be for our newest Intermediate Technical trail. Look for a few more berms and benches when we open next season, but even now it is a great addition to the family. If you enjoy trails such as El Burro Loco and Mom Jeans then this new section of War Gerbil will be right in your wheelhouse. To find it, look for the trail taking off to the right of the top of Pirate Trail. It is a short pedal out, but the goods start as soon as you cross Wide Open Trail.
Morgan and the crew have also been busy with some machine building as well, working to eliminate road sections in the Chair 3 zone. We will be waiting on the fall rains to open these sections up, but long term they will be a huge benefit to folks lapping Crescent, Payday, Hammer, and Jackass via Chair 3.
