In addition to all the action of opening weekend, Angel Fire also hosted the Betti All Ride womens mountain bike clinic. Offering skills training for all levels of riders and all types of terrain. Over 30 women attended mainly focusing on the gravity side of things. They are offering clinics all across CO, NM, and AZ, check it out ladies!
If you are looking for a trip to "Gnarnia", my favorite link up of trails started with World Cup, which is one rock garden after another, take an early cut out to Lower Supreme DH. Lower supreme offers a killer jump line and some big berms, "rail-able at about mach 10 . At the next intersection take Drops and Lolipops, a flowy blue trail, but you can carry some serious speed! This will land you at the famous Candy Land trail. This trail rocks! With some huge step ups and hips on the drop in, it then leads you into a set of berms and down to a series of HUGE tables. They are built perfectly with lips that send it. Once you get the speed figured out, it'll be all you want to do all day. After "airing it out" in Candy Land, cruise back down to "base camp" and crack open a cold one or pull up at Sunset Grill for some margs.
The next post will be about Durango and my first true adventures of "Urban Camping" in The Betty.
