Canyons Resort - Gravity Bike and Skills Park

By Powderhound Matt Aug 27, 2012
Downhill biking... and getting left in the dust!

I spent last Wednesday at Canyon's Resort Bike Park with my buddy Jason, and let's just say it was a very humbling experience. I considered myself a decent rider... until this day.

The Canyon's Bike Park has both downhill trails and a skills park... so basically you take a lift up the mountain, and ride down... great for anyone who don't want to climb. As I was plowing through some of the smaller features... catching a good half foot of air... I was stopped dead in my tracks by a different group of riders. These guys were hucking their meat off huge airs... basically making me look like a chump. What's worse... they were like 9, 11, and 12 years old. Young local riders just flat out crushing it! 

Needless to say, if I plan on getting any better at this whole downhilling thing... I may need to spend some more time here... ok, a lot more time here. And I may need to catch more than a half foot of air.
