To all the people of the gravity/DH/MX/slalom set (and anyone else interested), this is to let ya'll know that Sky High BMX II in Arvada runs gates and races every Tuesday night starting yesterday.
Here's the deal:
If you want to race, you'll have to join the NBL and then races are $7 and they run two races every Tuesday night. Gates/practice starts around 5 or so, with racing starting at 7pm. HOWEVER - we talked to them and asked about just doing gate practice, and here's what the said: as long as you have a current UCI-sanctioned license (NORBA is a part of USA Cycling which is a part of UCI) for insurance purposes and can throw them $2 to help the cause then they're down with people coming out and doing gates.
Myself and couple Mojo Wheels riders (Duc, Coop, and Heidi) went out last night and had a blast running gates, sprinting, jumping, etc. THerre weren't a lot of people out there last night, but the attendance grows as the summer moves along.

Shy High BMX II is approx. 1200 ft in length. The track consists of four 180 degree turns giving you five straight aways of BMX action. Begining from a large starting hill you will encounter a large step-up followed by a 5ft tall table top that will drop you into the first turn. Out of the turn you will come up to "DUB ZILLA" our signature big double of the track followed by a small double into another large double. Turn two leads you into the rhythm section which is partially down hill consisting of a roller, table, roller, step-up, roller , and small double out. The fourth straight has a small double leading into "Hamburger Hill" a large triple step-up followed by a table top into the last turn. The final straight will lead you to two sets of doubles just before the finish line.
