Cam McCaul Turns Mt. Bachelor’s Baddest Trail Into A Music Video

Every bike park has that one trail – the one everyone talks about, whether out of excitement or straight up fear. At Whistler, it’s the trails like Dirt Merchant. At Mt. Bachelor, it’s the Rattlesnake trail, a rooty, rocky, and super techy downhill. For local (and international) legend Cam McCaul, it counts as one of his favorite tracks to test his skills.
