This week the mountain bike national championship is being held at Snowshoe — these athletes are really hitting the trials hard! Some huge speed, jumps, and crashes. If this looks a little above your biking skill level, don’t worry! There are all levels of trails at Snowshoe — for beginners through pro — plus they rent awesome bikes that are specifically made to flow over all sorts of obstacles. Our favorite trail is Skyline in the Western Territory — long, flowy, and lots of jumps that you can hit hard and get long flights, or if you’re more timid you can roll over with much more control.
Here’s some footage of day one of the Downhill.
