Two Wheeled Action ~
With the melting of the snow comes our second favorite activity - bikes! From amazing trails around the June Lake area, to the lift assisted gravity induced shred spectacle that is the Mammoth Mountain Bike Park, the Eastern Sierra has no lack of two wheeled awesomeness.
This Friday (July 1st) marks the kickoff of the 2016 Village Championship Downhill (VCDH) series presented by Five Ten. Basically the series is comprised of ten Friday evening races between July 1st and September 9th at Mammoth Mountain Bike Park. Show up Fridays at 4pm to register in front of the Mammoth Mountain Adventure Center at Main Lodge, be at the race start at 5pm and get ready to rip. The races are free to enter (though you will need a bike park ticket, season pass or you can purchase a racers two upload pack for $8) and being JLB is running them we have super killer gear from our generous sponsors (e.g., Five Ten, Footloose, JLB, Oakley, GoPro, Giro, Sensus, etc.) to raffle to competitors at each race. Oh yeah and thanks to Mammoth Mountain, we've got killer after parties setup after each race with tasty apps, $3 JLB and happy hour pricing all night.

Returning for a second year of carnage the USA Cycling Nationals will be taking over Mammoth Mountain Bike Park July 12th to July 17th. With a number of JLB TestPilots racing, including our Assistant Brewer Johnny Kimball defending his Cat 1 DH 30-34 National title, we will be heckling in full force. If you're interested in racing, volunteering as a course marshal, or participating in our JLB TestPilot Support Program, reply to this email and we'll get you dialed in.
Finally after all of this we close out the bike season with the Kamikaze Bike Games (KBG). If you truly want to experience the utter chaos that is biking in the Eastern Sierra... KBG is not to be missed. With events for every ability level and discipline, KBG is a two wheeled circus for the whole family. Watch for the JLB TestPilots on the podium.
Get Out on That Bike!
