Video: SR SunTour riders Brett Tippie and Eric Carter ride Ray’s MTB Park

Forks Video

I had the privilege of riding at Ray’s MTB Park in Milwaukee, WI a couple of years ago and it was a blast. It is serious fun when the weather outside is not conducive to dirt shredding. If you’ve never been, you should definitely put it on your to-do list.

I was reminded of how awesome Ray’s is when our friends at SR Suntour sent us this video showing Brett Tippie and Eric Carter having some fun during SR Suntour’s suspension clinic road trips to both Ray’s locations (Milwaukee, WI and Cleveleand, OH).

Laps and laughs on the pump track, a roll through the giant hamster wheel and a jump or two into the foam pit are all in a day’s work for these lucky guys. Ray’s really does have something for everyone, even the little ones as shown in the video. Funny stuff from the girl who smiles at Brett while holding a big club and wants to give a new definition to the term “beat the pros”!

The folks at SR Suntour explain, “The plan was simple; educate retailers, ride bikes, have fun, stay warm and share the world of SR SUNTOUR with all! In February of 2014 the North America SR SUNTOUR crew went on a road trip to visit Rays Indoor Bike park in Milwaukee WI and Cleveland OH. We invited along two of our favorite ambassadors Eric Carter and Brett Tippie; loaded a van with bikes, product, a megaphone and headed east from Madison WI.”

Road Trip

Lots of gear and like all good road trips this was as organized as it got.

Suspension Clinic

Bicycle retailers taking some time to learn, we like to make things easier and this is part of the equation. Thanks to all who came.

Tippie being Tippie, getting warmed up for some MC radness.


SR Suntour Road Trip

We present the SR SUNTOUR mini rhythm/jump line, which doubled as the “Beat the Pro” Milwaukee racecourse.

Beat the Pro

Eric Carter is one smart racer; he studies, finds the line and goes for the win. He never lost a “Beat the pro” race, came close, but always found ways to shave time.


We could have jumped this line for hours, so fun!

Ray's Cleveland

The Cleveland course suited 20” wheels, a few almost beat Carter. One sweet hip in the background!


You cannot see it all but there is 150,000+ square feet of goodness here, Rays Cleveland.


A few young guns back flipped this, you may have seen the edit? It was taken down before none of us hurt ourselves, not that we would have even tried. It was big.
