We hopped off the OutDoor Demo shuttle overwhelmed with options. Here we are at the base of a canyon in the desert with nothing but sweet singletrack all around. We headed up the main road toward the out door booths to see what damage we could do for the day. As we walked up the road there were a few dinky little stands and we thought "is this it?"

Extreme pogo sticking...the next great Olympic sport!
