The 2013 Colorado Freeride Festival was held the weekend of July 27th in Winter Park, Colorado and the event appeared to be a huge success. The Trestle Bike Park crew along with FMB rider Kelly McGarry built a course that featured huge hits and technical features. The progression of tricks the competitors worked through, as finals approached, was unbelievable. Big crowds, big air and lots of fun highlighted a great event.
This past weekend Winter Park Resort and the Trestle Bike Park hosted some of the best mountain bike riders on earth for four days of extreme, high-altitude action. I had the opportunity to shoot the Shimano Slopestyle competition for Plus Size BMX and Six Twenty Four Magazine and had a blast. The weather played a bit of havoc but that seems to be normal this summer. At least this time only the competition was hot.
