Apparently they have some new trails in the Las Vegas area. (At least some I have never seen in my travels to LV) And they look pretty good! Would definitely like to hit these up sometime. I just happened to stumble across this GoPro edit of Tucker Norman riding them on his Contraband.

Lisa Coaches at Dixie Trix
At Ranchstyle this year Tammy Donahugh ran a Womens Only slopestyle event called Dixie Trix. The event included clinics taught by fellow women riders. One of which was BLK MRKT's Lisa Myklak-Tharp. This is a few of the highlights shot by Miller Event Studio.

BLK MRKT at Ranchstyle
This last weekend was a good one for the Black Market crew at Ranchstyle MTB Festival in Grand Junction, Colorado. The wind was a hassle all weekend but plenty of good riding got done.
Congratulations to Justin Wyper for winning the Pinkbike Best Trick contest. He threw a Double Barbara, a double Saran wrap and a cordova flip to win the fan voting on Pinkbike.

We also had a podium finish in the first Dixie Trix Womans Freeride event. Lisa Tharp ended up in Second place right after Tammy Donahugh. Good Job Lisa!!!

Colorado trip Update from Jake Kinney
So I have been in Colorado these last couple day and it has been great. My game plane was to come to Colorado about a week and a half before the Ranchstyle contest in Grand Junction and hit up as many different jump spots, skateparks and shops to just ride with all the local CO kids and give out some fun free product. And to spread the word about Woodward West and all the companies that support me. Then just have fun riding and put smiles on kids and other riders faces by hanging with them in their hometown areas.
The trip has been great so far, we have ridden some amazing places. I also entered a fixed gear race around Denver which was awesome. Yesterday we went to Valmont Bike Park to do some filming and riding. One of things we have been battling with here is crazy winds these last couple days. When we arrived to Valmont it was beyond windy. Boulder MTB Association started a Tuesday night dual slalom race series that night. So why not enter...right?! ( Take in mind I was there to jump and I was on my mob with micro knobbies, one brake and 28/12 gearing). Perfect bike for dirt jumps but made it work for some racing. We had a full rack of 32 guys. I loved the course and ended up putting down the fastest times which I was really pumped about. Then the racing started and was going great and made it to round of 8 while still winning my heats and won the first race of 2 in round of 8. In my second heat of round 8 I slid the front tire a little in a corner that had been getting broken up so I lost the time I had gained coming into that heat. I was extremely stoked to be able to make it that far and put the times down on my dirt jump bike. I am looking forward to the next couple days and then we hit Ranchstyle. It has been a great trip so far I have made lots of new friends and met so many cool young rippers and also many fun good riders in general. Its truly great to be part of the MTB community. Also Chris from www.plussizebmx.com has been great. Thanks to him and his wife for letting me live on their couch here while showing me around this state. More to come from the trip. Thanks to everyone who has helped out...
Thanks - Jake Kinney
