Mountain Bike Park Opening Day Set for May 22

Press Release // Mammoth Lakes, Calif. –  Mark your calendar, schedule your tune-up and grab your crew; the Mammoth Mountain Bike Park is set to open for the year on May 22. A number of improvements and events are on tap for the Mammoth Bike Park in 2015, including the USA Cycling Mountain Biking National Championships, which moves to Mammoth this July.

“From the world’s best riders to those just getting started, we’ve got something new for everyone this summer,” said Gabe Taylor, Bike Park Marketing Manager. “As the host of the National Championships and the Kamikaze Bike Games, we’ll welcome the mountain biking elite to Mammoth. But we’re just as excited to be welcoming total beginners to the sport. Discovery Zone has been a massive hit, it’s such a comfortable learning experience, and we’re working hard to make it even better.”

Improvements

Several trail extensions aimed at increasing the connectivity of Mammoth’s trail network are scheduled for completion this summer. Trail Home, an intermediate trail from McCoy Station back to the gondola will provide riders with fantastic views and a clear arc of progression from beginner to intermediate. The completion of Recoil, a flowy jump line weaving down Broadway and the new Twilight Connector trail, linking two of Mammoth’s iconic Downhill rides, Upper Recoil and Twilight Zone, round out the planned trail improvements.

Also new this year, the Bike Park Basecamp adjacent to the Gondola at Main Lodge will provide the perfect setting to gather after a ride. With outdoor seating, bike tuning stands, snacks and locally brewed beer available for purchase, it’s an ideal post-ride venue.

A shiny new fleet of Trek demo bikes will also be ready for opening day. With offerings including Trek’s top-of-the-line Downhill and Enduro bikes, the demo team will have riders of all levels outfitted and ready to hit the park.
