Yesterday, Pete Webber (IMBA) gathered a few of the Valmont Committee members together at the site to look over the latest plans and talk specifically about Race Venues at the park. It was a cold windy day but everyone was pumped to be on site imagining what it's going to be like racing here. You will not believe the incredible view from the top of the hill! This park is going to be world class!
Saturday was a great day for the Bike Park fund raising effort! Rob Love, Dan Farrell and the Blue Sky Velo team put on an incredible cyclocross race....not only that, they helped us raise over $1000 in donations to the park! The Blue Sky crew cooked up tasty Brats and all donations went to the bike park! Talk about passionate cyclists! Thanks so much to everyone who helped and contributed!

Why: The park designers want your input to make this a killer place to ride! Meet Randy Spangler and Judd de Vall
Who: All riders interested in gravity/jump/slalom/technical styles of mountain biking/BMX, and anyone else too!
Come over to The Fix this Friday night to check out preliminary plans for Valmont Bikepark, meet the park designers, give feedback, and learn more about the project. This gathering is focused on the downhill/dirt jump/technical riding elements at Valmont, but all types of riders are welcome to attend and check it out. Plus, there will be fizzy beverages in stock. Don't worry if you can't attend this time, as there will be future opportunities to view the plans for the entire park and give feedback as things move forward. The next chance will be at the BMA Annual Meeting and Party, Nov. 6 at Rocky Mounts.
The gravity/technical terrain at Valmont is being designed by Alpine Bike Parks LLC, a professional bikepark and trail building company, in partnership with IMBA. The designers include Judd de Vall and Randy Spangler, veteran riders and park builders of Alpine Bike Parks, and Pete Webber of IMBA.
Please bring an open mind, fresh ideas and show up early if you wanna ride The Fix jumps. Check inside the shop for beta before you ride.
