2. IDAHO VELODROME AND CYCLING PARK IN EAGLE IDAHO

Our good friend Chris Cook from Idaho sent us the following information:

All, I just wanted to share with you a video of the Idaho Velodrome and Cycling Park in Eagle, Idaho.

The bike park is the result of 4000 hours of volunteer work and financial support from the city of Eagle, SWIMBA, and many others in the community. Judd deVall and Alpine Bike Parks designed and created phase one of the park which included 3 jump lines and a pump track (designed and installed by Randy Spangler) as well as a dual slalom and mountain cross course (designed and installed by Eric Carter). Local volunteers have also been expanding phase one by installing beginner and intermediate dirt jumps, a skills park, and a grass area with trees to hang out in. The expert line (Sage Fright) has also been extended with 6 more jumps – now 13 jumps total on the line.

Hopefully we will see you out at the park in 2009! Please pass this on to others who might be interested…

Thanks,
Chris Cook
