The Bull of the Woods is an event by the riders, for the riders, and judged solely by the riders. While this might sound a bit cliché, it truly is a rider driven event. Having grown past the confines of being fully off the beaten path, the event was held at Carter Park in the town of Breckenridge.
Builders spent months utilizing the natural terrain in the woods above the town park creating three varying zones. While the finals would be held on the sledding hill where one lucky person would win the coveted title of Bull of the Woods.
The first zone started off with a mellow rainbow then a pole jam to butter pad with a down bar. The second zone built on the natural use of back to back c shaped rainbows into opposing creeper logs and ended with the Nightmare Snowboards wall ride complete with keyhole and down log. The final upper zone had a monstrous flat down flat with an up flat right next to it.
The two features for the finals were a burly down to flat or donkey dick if you will that bucked more than a few riders and a train track side by side battle ship.
While some events tell spectators where they could and couldn’t be, this event encourages the crowd to get involved. On more than one occasion a rider would slip out and slam a on looker. This is just part of the community building of this event.
With a positive turn out, the blessing of the Town of Breckenridge, and a community that cares expect Bull of the Woods 2017 to be bigger. Till then view the photos (click the gallery), watch the video recap dropping later this week, and if you see someone that was a part of this slap them a high five.
Big thanks go out to Ronnie Barr, Josh Moses, and Joe Suta of Trilogy Enterprises for organizing this as well as Tom Faber, Jamal Dyani, and all the others that wrangled the woods to make the obstacles.
