Say it ain’t so! Interbike is moving to Anaheim, California from Las Vegas in 2011 until 2013.
While the change of scenery won’t deter reporting from the showroom floor, I can’t help but lament that the Outdoor Dirt Demo will not be held in such a freeride paradise as Bootleg Canyon in Boulder City, Nevada. The challenging and chundery trails of Bootleg Canyon were indeed the ultimate testing ground for serious downhill weaponry.
As a fond farewell to the rocky magnificence of Bootleg check out this last DH dispatch from Interbike 2010 – a video mixtape toasting both the trails and the sexy steeds built to slay them. Featured bikes include Steve Peat’s Santa Cruz Carbon V-10, Sam Hill’s Specialized Demo 8, Kyle Strait’s Pivot Phoenix DH, Intense’s M9, Turner’s DHR, Devinci’s Wilson and Commencal’s Supreme DHv3. Special thanks to Greg Clark, Steve Woerz and Anton Hatwich for the time and talent.
