‘World of Adventure’ hits the trail at Killington, the ‘Beast of the East’

Sure, it’s fun to rip around on the mountain when the dirt’s just so and the sun’s shining. If you’re racing in those perfect conditions, all the better.

But part of what keeps mountain biking fun is switching gears (no pun intended) when the weather changes.

That adaptability is also part of what sets the elite apart from the rest of us. Join “World of Adventure” as they follow the top mountain bikers from around the world at the USA Cycling Pro Gravity downhill event at Vermont’s Killington Bike Park.

The trail’s called Goat Skull, if that’s any indication of what racers could expect to see on the course.
