2013 Season Opener Recap

Highland Mountain Bike Park opened for the season and was blessed with gorgeous weather all weekend! The weekend was filled with fun events as Aaron Chase and Mike Montgomery were on hand for free Ayr Academy coaching on the trails and at the Ayr Bag. One Industries also sponsored a mountain-wide scavenger hunt as clues were given out via Instagram, capped off with the top prize of a full One Industries kit given to the rider with the strongest throwing arm as participants hurled a pair of knee pads for top speed!

Wyatt Overson
Please choose me for your Ayr Academy Scholarship because so far this summer I am stuck in my Grandparent’s house in Massachusetts for 2 weeks with nothing to do. It would be cool also to get some tips from Aaron Chase because he shreds it.
