The event is bringing bike manufactures and advocates together so that the public can try to latest and greatest in mountain biking. However, perhaps the most noteworthy aspect about this event is that they chose Bentonville to host it, thanks to the world-class trails we have integrated into our communities.

Ashley Korenblat, one of Outerbike's and CEO of Western Spirit Cycling says there was a lot of thought put into where to host this national event.  She says, "It is really important to have trail systems that are well-designed and well-built and easy to get to. So many people come from all over the country. We have people from 46 states and four countries at this event who came to Bentonville specifically to go riding and this is the first time they’ve been here."
