Motorcycle Trials at Spirit Mountain

August 23-25 of 2013 marked the weekend of the American Motorcyclist Association NATC Motorcycle Trials Rounds 9 and 10, which were held at Spirit Mountain.  This is a short video recap of some of the riding that took place that weekend.  The event was quite amazing to watch.  These riders have unbelievable skill and balance and have definitely honed their craft.  If you ever have the chance to see this type of competition in person I highly recommend it!

Mountain Biking at Spirit Mountain

By now you have probably heard that Spirit Mountain has been running chairlifts this summer for mountain bikers. There have been people here to ride from all over the country and even from Canada. These trails are getting some well-deserved attention and I want to let everyone know that if you have ever wanted to try mountain biking, now is the time to do it. With all of the other great areas to mountain bike in our beautiful city, such as Piedmont, Lester and Hartley, Duluth is making a name for itself across the country as a mountain-biking destination!

The above video by Higher Base Media is of the trail Candyland at Spirit Mountain.
