You know what we're REALLY excited about? Opening day at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s Bike Park. You know why? Well, aside from the fact that it means lift-access riding is back on the calendar again, there’s four new trails that will be opening off the top of the Sweetwater Gondola. Years of planning, days of digging, and hours of test riding by a dedicated trail crew and local athletes, including none other than TGR’s Kai Jones, have converged to unlock the next phase of the JH Bike Park, expanding up the Sweetwater Gondola. The four new trails of varying difficulty and length introduce a new era of biking at JHMR that any new or seasoned rider can test their skills on.

Ripping around on downhill bikes doesn’t always need to happen between the race tape while the clock is running – in fact, it’s usually way more fun when you’re just out there tearing up loamy singletrack in the woods. Vancouver Island’s Kendall McLean knows that feeling all too well – turns out he’s a bit of a loam connoisseur himself. Basically, all we’re trying to say is that his riding makes us want to fire up the shuttle rig and get a few laps in
When Innsbruck debuted its slopestyle competition in 2017, it felt like a showcase of the most progressive riding in mountain biking. And then came the following year, where the riding only got bigger and better. This pattern has repeated itself year after year, with the riders constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible on two wheels. We don’t know exactly what happens in Innsbruck that gets the competitors so fired up. Maybe it’s the extra-strong espresso and schnitzel? Regardless,
