    So you want to ride the '14 Konas, on real trails, for long rides?

    Ok, so those of you that don't know, the Wydaho Rendezvous is held annually inteton Valley, Idaho. It is a pure TVTAP fundraiser for trail development and maintenance in Teton Valley.
    This year it is at Grand Targhee resort. It is labor day weekend, and will feature all of the stuff that great festivals have...
    Beer.
    Group rides
    All day lift served insanity
    clinics
    Trials exhibitions
    food
    bands

    and best of all, it is becoming a one stop mini-consumer demo festival.
    Demo fleets will be on hand from
    Giant
    Rocky Mountain
    Santa Cruz
    Specialized
    Pivot
    Scott
    Trek

    Entry is $55 lousy bucks.
    This alone should be enough. pretty ridiculous.
    You will be able to ride whatever bike you want, i would think.
    This includes lifts.
    Beer.
    Music.
    the races, clinics, raffles, etc will be A la Carte/
    (you get some raffle tickets with registration)
    T shirts, a few Snake River Beers every day, t-shirt, and a very good swag bag will be included.

    Free group rides all over the valley, from the Pass to the Big Holes, everywhere.
    DH clinics with Shaums March, and trials, beginners, women, and advanced clinics will be available.

    Camping is at targhee, so literally roll to the lifts!



    There will be two new major trails at Targhee debuting for the race, including a flow trail and (i believe) a new DH.

    Andy and Harlan have been working like crazy up there. it's getting nuts, trail wise.
    Feel free to ask any questions, i"ll do my best to answer.

    Here is a teaser user video of 38 special, which debuted last fall...(slow time waster)


    This is how we do it.

    Oops, my bad. The shop that is owned by Targhee sells Konas, so I assumed they were in. This is a better Q for the demo manager at KONA!

    It's too bad the builder of that trail was such a fan of switchbacks, cause it looks beautiful...not to mention, where are the Kona's?
    The secret to mountain biking is pretty simple. The slower you go the more likely it is you’ll crash.

    There was no option other than the switchbacks, really. (Borders wilderness)
    And the Konas, I imagine, are in the Kona demo van!
