Those whoops and hollers in the woods at Sandy Ridge aren’t Bigfoot but your fellow riders expressing their overwhelming joy. You can see it in their loam-eating grins as they blast back into the trailhead after rallying an unending collection of deep berms, blazing fast straightaways, and chunky rock gardens. See if you can grab the wheel of a local and have them show you the booters and accelerator berms that will help you unlock the ultimate flow. You’re guaranteed to be exhausted but giggling by the time you reach the bottom. Anyone up for another lap?
