Saturday-Sunday, September 22-23
You know how sometimes people say so many amazing things about a place that, once you get there, it's almost impossible for it to live up to your expectations? Well, this could have been the case when we first headed to Fruita but it wasn't. In fact, it was not only as fun as we thought it would be. It was even more fun than that.
This year we're going for round three, and staging it out of the Hot Tomato Café and Over The Edge Sports. Jen Zeuner and Anne Keller, as well as Landon Monholland and Ross Schnell, are the greatest Fruita resources ever, and super helpful in making the camp a huge success.
In the mornings we'll start with skill sessions, tailored to individual rider levels, and ideal for dialing in both cross-country and freeride techniques. In the afternoons we'll head out to the Kokopelli Trailhead and the 18 Mile Trailhead as well.
The Kokopelli Trailhead has six different loops, tons of rock features, technical climbs and descents, and beginner to advanced terrain. In 2010 Anne did a shoot with us on Mary's Loop and it ended up on the cover of BIKE Magazine. Another shot, from the entrance to Horsethief Bench, made it to Photo of the Day. It's a great place.
The 18 Mile Trailhead has super smooth and twisty singletrack and amazing ridge riding as well. One day we ran into a bunch of local riders who loop those trails several times a week ... but walk a few sections they can't yet ride. This camp is the cure for that. You'll learn a whole season's worth of skills in just two days.
So, if you want to travel to an incredible cross-country, all-mountain and light freeride destination at exactly the perfect time of year, this is it. If you already live in town and want to ride your home trails smoother and faster and better in general, come see us for that too.
