Read the following press releases to discover what the lucky winners will get to experience.
Mammoth Bike Park
Whether you’re hitting 65 mph down Kamikaze or tail whipping off wooden jumps on Twilight Zone, Mammoth Bike Park has it all. With over 80 miles of singletrack, a summit at 11,053 ft and new trails offering more jumps, berms and drops to feast on, Mammoth is the country’s biggest and best place to ride.
Snow Summit Bike Park
As the premier mountain bike destination in Southern California, Snow Summit has a diverse mix of trails and terrain for riders of all ages and ability levels, including a gravity fed park with lift-served access to six trails and a Skill Builder Park with pump tracks, a jump line, and a pro line. Riders can also explore 60+ miles of cross-country trails that are directly accessible from the Summit base and mountaintop areas. Nestled in the heart of the picturesque San Bernardino National Forest, Summit Bike Park is easily accessible from most points in SoCal and hosts multiple mountain bike competitions and events throughout the summer season, including the annual Crafts & Cranks bike and craft beer festival and Summit Series showcase for local riders.
SilverStar Bike Park
From mid-June to early September, a progressive 125+km combined XC and DH trail network attracts every level of downhill biker to Canada's second largest bike park. A high-speed chairlift offers downhill riders easy access to the top of an incredible selection of flow and technical trails, maintained throughout the season by a full-time trail crew. This is the place to discover everything from beginner biking trails winding gently through wildflower meadows to expert runs filled with berms, jumps and features designed to challenge the hardcore rider. For those new to biking or looking to build on their skills, SilverStar has the coaches, camps and rental fleet to support learning progression.
SilverStar Bike Park is an IMBA Silver Level Ride Centre. In 2017, SilverStar’s Beowulf XC trail was designated as an IMBA Epic.
Sun Peaks Bike Park
Sun Peaks Bike Park has been sending it since 1999 and serves up 595m (1,952ft) of legendary lift-access riding! Situated in the mountains above the BC bike mecca of Kamloops, we serve up chairlift assisted shredding to some of the best bikers in the business. With 40 trails ranging from our signature steep, technical, and downright rowdy hand-built singletrack, to flowy machine-made jump lines and stunning alpine cross country, it’s non-stop stoke for the serious rider. With the lift running from 10 am to 7 pm daily from June 22 to September 3, you can stack laps until your hands fall off before hitting the numerous sunny patios that await in the village to keep the good times rolling.
