Trail Building, Back Injury and Downhill MTB - Steve Wentz of Momentum Trail Concepts - The Inside Line Podcast

Welcome mountain bikers! We're proud to have a trail-building, bike-shredding guest on The Inside Line podcast today. Steve Wentz of Momentum Trail Concepts joins us in Boise, Idaho, in between excavator sessions, as he carves out a new trail here in town. The trail is part of a SWIMBA project that has been in the works for some time, and it offers up some new, exciting riding in our region.

Steve is a former US Junior National DH team member, a former World Cup DH racer, he’s a professional trail builder, mad consumer of M&M’s and a long-time Vital MTB test rider. In 2004, Steve freeloaded a ride in spomer's 2001 Chevy Malibu from the Calgary World Cup to Denver with Clay Porter riding shotgun. Steve Wentz is a unique human being who can't snap or whistle and was even a door-to-door window salesman. Thank you listeners for your support, I hope you’re getting some good ride time in, give your local trail builder a big, fat socially-distanced hug, and enjoy the episode!!!

Maxxis Tires will keep you and your bike connected to the trail with their wide variety of tread patterns, rubber compounds and tire constructions. I’m still enjoying an Assegai front tire with Minion Semi-Slick out back on my daily driver 5010. The Assegai decides the line with the Minion SS keeping things playful as it slides along for the ride. Maxxis.com has all your MTB tire needs.
