    Neal I'm curious,

    Sport Systems has your August 2nd day listed as an Enduro race? Sounds fun if that's correct. Any idea on what trails will be used?

    I'm not involved in that event but it's actually an Enduro "Fest" so they'll be using the lifts for some of the events. I think this is the main website for the NM Enduro Series:

    If anyone is coming up to ride Saturday and camp out Friday night don't miss the free concert downtown Friday night! Igor & The Red Elvises are playing, "your favorite band!".

    This is usually the best concert of the summer series. See Igor & Red Elvises - YOUR FAVORITE BAND! & Gordons' 2014 Summer Concerts for the rest of the summer.

    Rockin! What do these trails look like, all bigger "DH/FR" type stuff, or can I come to play on a 5" trail bike?

    I'm looking at getting a more gravity oriented rig this fall, but would love to come check out the trails asap!

    CoPaul Didnt have any trouble on his Mid travel..RCC rode it a bunch on his 6" pivot Also Skeldify didnt have any problems on his 27.5 Carbine.



    I wouldn't let the bike hold you back. Theres also lots of trails that are actually suited for a bike with your travel.

    What bike is it?

    Here are videos of all the trails at Pajarito:

    For shorter travel bikes I'd suggest starting with Aspenola, then Aspen for Trouble/JR/Half Aspen, then try Dogpatch, then Aspen for Trouble/JR/Sidewinder/Battle Stations. The rest are rideable but a bit steeper on a short travel bike. For a really easy trail there is also Cub Scout.

    All trails are built by volunteers so they are more single track than wide bermed out flow trails but they flow well enough. There's also a ton of wood features from easy to gnarly.

    Pajarito this Saturday!

    Don't forget Pajarito's open for biking this Saturday. Trails are in great shape. We only had a few hands tonight but we got a bunch of work done on the trails. Took out the stump on the top of Fast and Loose, rebuilt the jump on AFT next to the pond, rebuilt the jumps and step-down on upper Mother's Milk, and reworked the first half of Chupacabra. This Saturday's going to be a great day of riding!

    The trails were great Saturday! I don't know who's doing the race but I've ridden the course several times and it's a blast. The lifts shutdown for about an hour for lightening so I rode the two stages off the back of the mountain with my DH bike and hitched a ride back up. While it was fun on the DH bike I think it was faster the times I've done it on my enduro bike (Norco Range 650b) because I could pedal up to speed faster on a few sections. I also had to push on the some of the transfer stage which is an easy pedal on my Norco.
