We need to give a huge shout-out to
Mark Hayes and his crew at Highland Mountain for creating a well balanced
mountain bike park that has something for all levels. Dieselbikes has
been riding Highland since it opened to the public and every year it gets
bigger and better! New beginner trails, additional jump lines, stunts,
pumptracks - you name it, Highland probably has it!
This past month was Highland's Second
Annual Claymore Slopestyle Challenge! Top riders such as Paul
Basagoitia, Aaron Chase, Eric Porter, Dave Smutok and many more converged on
Highland to compete for the first place prize of $5,000! These riders
pulled off tricks that defied gravity and some appeared to defy physics.
All the riders who competed were impressive to watch with Brandon Semenuk of
Canada taking home first place and the $5k purse.
