Bootleg Canyon Downhill Challenge
For the first time in the history of Interbike and OutDoor Demo, we’re challenging attendees to see if they can beat the time set at Bootleg Canyon by Interbike Account Executive and former Downhill World & National Champion Leigh Donovan. Numerous prizes will be awarded for the most attempts and overall fastest time. Prizes include awesome gear from Scott Sports, Oakley, GoPro, Troy Lee Designs, FOX, One Industries, Shimano, SockGuy and more.
Riders in the challenge are encouraged to visit GoPro to demo a camera, document their ride and then keep the SD card.
“I encourage anyone with DH skills to come on out and see if you can beat a 40-year old woman with a desk job,” said Donovan.
