Proving Grounds Evolves: New Partnership with NST Takes Comp to Next Level


Natural Selection and Proving Grounds are partnering to reimagine what mountain bike competition can look like September 8-11 in Prineville, Oregon. Natural Selection is pushing the progression of mountain bike competition yet again by partnering with Proving Grounds to bring the same intensity that we’ve seen across other areas of extreme sport.

Natural Selection said this competition will be “not unlike Natural Selection on snow. These athletes are empowered to choose their own line through a massive dirtpark covered with naturally enhanced drops, massive doubles, berm presses and rhythm sections.”

Natural Selection focuses on instilling a deeper connection between Mother Nature and those who like to use her naturally enhanced terrain as a playground.

Check out the full trailer here, and be on the lookout for the live streamed event on the Natural Selection’s website, September 8-11, 2022.
