Back by popular demand, Interbike strikes Las Vegas for the twenty-first year in a row. The dirt demo is still at the unassumingly rugged Bootleg Canyon, but the indoor show has moved to the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
Day one is the dirt demo at Bootleg Canyon, where riders, media, and industry people get a chance to test all the new goods, shake a few hands, and get heatstroke.
We're here, now what?

The terrain of Bootleg Canyon is an unforgiving mess of loose sand and jagged rock. Bring a tube...or two.
