    Smile PedroFest - Pro Rider Release

    Summer in the Berkshires – the Pros head to Pedro’s Fest 2007
    Alison Dunlap, Sue Haywood, Barry Wicks, Jeff Lenosky just to name a few!

    For mountain bike fans, summer in the Berkshires can only mean one thing – Pedro’s Festival and this year, as in years past, the pros are making their travel plans now to kick back, ride, camp and enjoy the show and their biking brethren at the 13th Annual western Massachusetts gathering.

    This year’s Festival features something special for every rider from the moment the gates open. Perennial Festival favorites, Iron Horse’s Brian Bartlett and Simon Lawton kick the weekend off in style on Friday morning with a downhill clinic that’s sure to attract a crowd. Trek VW gets things started for the ladies with National Champion Sue Haywood’s women’s only ride. Trek VW’s Lea Davidson will be down from her Little Bells’s girls mountain biking camp in Vermont to instruct and ride with the kids.

    DirtRag’s Maurice Tierney keeps things interesting by offering an expert ride at intermediate pace while the legendary Jeff Lenosky offers entertainment throughout the weekend with Trials Demos and Rides. Kona’s Barry Wicks will be serving up both xc and cyclocross options and for those seeking more cerebral late afternoon options, Trek VW’s Sue Haywood and former World Champion LunaChix Alison Dunlap offer autograph signings and chats on Friday and Saturday afternoons.

    The weekend sees the LunaChix out in force, with Alison Dunlap offering numerous Women’s Skills clinics and Rides along with her fellow teammates, Roz Puleo, Stephanie Goodell and Anne Noga.

    Some of the pros can’t actually be at the Festival so Trek has arranged for us to watch them with live satellite broadcasts of the Tour de France in the Trek Lounge.

    As mastermind of this year’s Festival schedule Renee Hicks, says, “this year truly offers something for everyone. We’re bringing back big crowd favorites Brian Bartlett, Simon Lawton and Salem Mazzaway along with the offering the chance to ride with some of the biggest Luminaries in the sport. The Kids and Women’s offerings are really exciting this year too!”

    Singletrack

    The buzz is - lots of great singletrack right at the venue. Great new venue too! Flat and dry.

    I am pumped to go back this year. I have not been in 3 years and am really looking forward to it. Hearing that the new spot is flat for the campers is nice. I do hope they have some great trails on site and also hope they have a nice long loop off the back of Jiminy that I did a few years back. It was like 17 miles downhill, the 6 miles road uphill. A great ride that was! I hope they also get back to having the good vendors selling stuff, I always stocked up there.

    I'm psyched that it is so close to Jiminy. Lift accessed dh and xc trails, plus the alpine slide and the mountain coaster? Should be a great time.
