Before there was only Half Nelson, now we have Full Nelson. With an added kilometer of twisty, twirly, whirly trail - meticulously buffed and hand-crafted by the one and only "Big Red Ted" Tempany, and his motley Dream Wizards clan. The Full Nelson is now on the map as one of the most fun and flowey trails anywhere.
"I wasn't expecting this!", gasped Ted as he takes in the overwhelming support from the sponsors, and the massive amount of riders that showed up for the Full Nelson ride day. Red Bull was in charge of blasting the tunes and the hype. Anthill was on hand stoking the fire for their video (Strength in Numbers) premiere that evening. Rocky Mountain
were there with demo bikes, and Tuf Rack
was there to help get everyone to the top. Spring is here. Get on your bike. Hang out with your friends.
