My Name Is Kurt Sorge and I Like to Get Sideways

Who better to test out Nelson's first machine built flow trail, aptly named Turnstyles, than a beloved Canadian freerider known for swinging out the rear? Kurt Sorge is the best man for the job. 

Polygon Bikes with the scoop:

"More towns are realizing how beneficial biking is to the community and attracting people from all over to experience the beauty of our different areas in this great way. This is now more apparent all over the world and the “hit list” keeps growing and growing as more amazing trails, terrain and everything in-between keep catching my eye. 

Nelson has been one of those biking “hit list” destinations for a long time thanks to many dedicated trail builders. A few years ago with the help of the city of Nelson, local sponsors and a skilled trail building crew, Nelson received its first machine built trail. After a couple years in the making Turnstyles is born, the flow jump trail overlooking Nelson. The grand opening was dedicated to the late Stevie Smith. A Canadian flag is hung at the top of the trail in honour of everyone's hero and it always fires you up before dropping in.

It’s great to see facilities, bike parks, trail networks and more being created for everyone to enjoy. I know I can’t wait for more shuttle days on Turnstyles and pump track Mondays at the local bike park as well as exploring the riding all over the world!"
