In development for the past four years, we’re proud to introduce Beowulf, our newly minted XC epic, named after the poem about a legendary dragon-slaying Scandinavian warrior. Borrowing its name from the poem is a true fit for the trail, capturing the undertaking of building it from beginning to end. The 35km loop takes riders along ridgelines, through cedar rainforests and grassy meadows as it winds its way from the village and back again, covering all of the incredible terrains SilverStar has to offer. A must-do ride for the discerning mountain biker.

      I went up to silver star with the Markles and got some go pro clips. This is my first actual Down Hill ride since my collar bone injury.
