This weekend was the last two days of lift access at the Pajarito Bike Park in northern NM. Naturally, a bunch of riders showed up to ride the steep loose trails that are on offer here. We put together a short video edit, experimenting with a gimbal for the first time, and sessioned some drops near the base to get some stills.

Watch the video here! Trails include: JR, Dogpatch, and Chupacabra.

It was a great day spent on sessions and taking some hot laps on the steeper trails. After not being on the bike for 10 weeks due to injury, it was really inspiring following so many rippers, and we were all just stoked on the perfect fall riding.

Pajarito has recently received funding from the City of Los Alamos, and hired Hogan Koesis (head park designer at Angel Fire Bike Park until recently) so there looks to be bright things ahead for this mountain!

Special thanks to all these guys for keeping the hype up and being down to shoot photos and video for MTBNM!
