PRESS RELEASE

The Trail Party Approaches Durango, Colorado

Celebrate your send-a-pendence at Purgatory Bike Park on June 29th.

The Trail Party Approaches Durango, Colorado

Join the traveling circus on June 29th as Team Trail Party comes to Durango Colorado for the first stop of the 2019 tour. We are stoked to bring this new format to riders in southwest Colorado. Racers will have 100% lift access and six hours to race down 3-4 stages. In any order. As many times as they would like. At the end of the day we'll take the best times and calculate the results. Haven't been on the trainer all winter?  Flat in your first stage? Want more racing than one run and done? Not trying to be the best at exercising? Problem solved with the Trail Party Format.

The goal is to make racing accessible to more riders and in turn grow and strengthen bike parks, communities, and the sport itself. The entry fees are nearly 20% less than other popular racing events. For Purgatory only, if you register by June 1st you get the lift pass included free with your registration. That's less than $100 for a lift ticket, full day of racing, and life long memories with your buds. Our good friends The Reefs will be jammin' at the awards to keep the festivities rolling and your heads bobbin.

Specialized joins the party!

We would also like to introduce Specialized as the title sponsor for the series. Having the support of one of the world's leading bike and equipment producers means everything to TTP. Over the past couple years we have noticed the brand getting heavily involved with programs that support trail advocacy and core mountain bike riders, two things at the top of our list. Working with Zach and the team has been fundamental in legitimizing our vision.

"After hanging out with the Trail Party crew for a day this was just a natural fit for us here at Specialized. Their ethos is 100% something we want to get behind and support in a big way. Jeremiah and his crew of trail builders live and breathe for the sport. What they have done in Texas and the surrounding areas is nothing short of RAD!  It was clear from day 1 that they spend every waking minute building, creating and engaging the mountain biking community. Not to mention they have a hell of good time doing it. We are stoked to partner with Trail Party and join in the fun this year! See you at the races." ---- Zach Israel, USA Mountain Bike Category Leader

Also joining us on our journey this year is Deity, Dirt Components, The Sensus, Santa Fe Brewing, and Shimano. We believe it is important to work with people that match your ideals, dedication, and intensity. We couldn't be more excited with the groups we have crewed up with for this season as we all share the same thought that mountain bike racing can be for anyone.

All smiles after a day of stress free racing.

There is already a great group riders that RSVP'd for one or more of the events including Shawn Neer, Mason Bond, Janker Ted, Carson Lange, Jimmy Smith, Austen Bickford, the Colorowdies, and more. Don't miss out on the rowdy fun and obscene amounts of Yeeewwwws! this summer. We promise above all, a good time. Registration and info below.
