The Trail Party Series Introduces Gravity Stage Racing 19

"Racing should be a good time." Learn about a new format of racing coming to Colorado and New Mexico this summer.

The Trail Party Series Introduces Gravity Stage Racing

Join Team Trail Party this summer for a race series built on the fundamental principle that racing should be a good time. The events are focused on reaching a broader audience of rider by creating a laid back race experience.  We call this exceptional format Gravity Stage Racing.

Trail Party is rider-owned, giving our organization a unique insight into rider experience. We believe that every rider deserves the same level of service in our race from beginners to professional.  We are dedicated to creating a loyal rider base that will in turn support sustainable events that could someday be offered at Bike Parks around the nation.

The Format

The format of the Trail Party Series stands out from other gravity mountain bike races by alleviating many of the stresses that negatively affect the outcome of the rider’s weekend.

100% Lift Access

Riders will be fresh for the downhill stages.

“Best Of” Format

Allowing as many runs as a rider wants, means a mechanical, small crash, or catching another rider will not decide the outcome of a race.

Ride the Stages in Any Order

Letting riders go to whichever stage they would like throughout the day reduces long lines and adds an additional layer of strategy to the event.

Ride the Stages with Your Friends

Riding with friends or team members keeps the good vibes going all day.


The Venues

Purgatory Bike Park - June 29

The series will kick off in iconic Durango Colorado at Purgatory Bike Park leading into the 4th of July holiday. Riders will experience 3-4 stages in the bike park. Stay after the race to ride all the amazing backcountry that Durango has to offer. This event has all the ingredients to be a legendary party on bikes. 

Pajarito Bike Park - August 10

Our second venue on the tour is located just 40 minutes from Santa Fe in Los Alamos, New Mexico. We had our inaugural test event here last year with amazing feedback. The trails in the bike park are straight out of a backcountry downhill paradise and the surrounding 20 min plus descents around the city make this New Mexico’s best-kept secret. Take our word for it, you do not want to sleep on this event. It could become one of your favorite places to visit.

Angel Fire Bike Park - September 7

The final stop for the summer tour takes place at Angel Fire Bike Park, Trail Party’s home away from home. This event has been in the works for 3+ years and we are elated to have the tour end at one of the best bike parks in North America. We are pulling out all the stops for this party. There will be a kid’s pumptrack race before awards and we are working on a system where the registered riders get to vote on a stage to be used in the race! 


A New Day for Gravity Racing

Trail Party would love for you to join us at the bike parks this summer. Take a look at some of the reviews from riders that have previously ridden with us:

“The Party at Paja 2018 was a super relaxed format that provided a stress-free race environment for young and old racers alike. I definitely think this is the future of MTB racing and I can’t wait for the next one.” Teddy Jaramillo-Transition Bikes

“Hands down one of my favorite races of the year. More relaxed atmosphere than enduro races, but more bang for your buck than DH. It’s the best of both worlds.” Alex Scott-Jagged Axe Trail Design

“It was an awesome day of riding with a little friendly competition. Definitely my funnest race day of 2018 and I can’t wait to do it again.” Syd Schulz-Jamis Bikes



Early registration is open now which will give the first 100 riders that sign up for each event the opportunity to save on entry fees. A series relies on its rider base so please sign up early and share with your friends.             IG @TeamTrailParty                 FB Team Trail Party
