I got to USA MTB Open in Mamoth, CA, 9/16-18. Excellent race and trial courses and races. Chris Santos was outstanding in trials.
I rode Mamoth Off-The-Top > Beachcruiser > Downtown trails, fun intermediate downhill trails, first downhill for me. I'm hooked on downhill.
I was impressed by how many riders, and racers, used body armour and helmets with full face guards.
Were any of you there?
