Todd Hodder is back to provide us with his latest ‘tales from the trails’ update from his riding adventure to southern Utah – home to the Redbull Rampage. Find out where the hot spots are and what there is to ride, outside of the extreme terrain featured in the showcase event that only super humans dare to ride. Contrary to what you see, there is plenty to ride for all levels.
First stop St. George, southern Utah’s largest city located near the borders of Arizona and Nevada. St. George and Hurricane boast some of the best mountain biking around. Hurricane, only 25 minutes east of St. George, is home to the well known Gooseberry Mesa and now boasts the newly built JEM trail named after its builders John, Ellen and Mike.
