Race Course

Flow trails are an easy and fun way to get into gravity racing which brings us to round 2 of the Gravity Series, the Ricochet Rumble.

The first section of the course will be the highly popular Ricochet Trail which peels off Easy Street into some of the most flowing sections of track in the bike park. This low intermediate master piece will get riders into a good rhythm before they drop into the steeper turns on lower High Noon & the lower part of the All-Mountain Trail. Racers will then take a breath at creek station before a pinch climb to the top of Home Run, the final stage of the super fun Ricochet Rumble.
