HoffFEST - The Photo Epic

Oct 5, 2016 at 11:00
by Margus Riga  
A lot of work goes into putting on an event but it truly is one of the best weeks of the year. With good friends hanging out and riding, there's not much more you can ask for! With a dream set of jumps and hanging out in the backcountry, it's pretty cool to show everyone where we live and why. Hopefully, this photo epic will inspire people to get outside and maybe even come check out the Koots for their next riding trip.

 10 years ago all of these shots would have been flamed for being "photoshopped". It's so surreal to see how big the Fest Series and Rampage are pushing the riding in just the last few years.
