Dirt Rag has chosen Big Bear as the location of their second Dirt Fest for a host of reasons, including technical and fun trails, scenic surroundings, a great event venue, and friendly committed staff.
Dirt Rag’s Quality Manager, Karl Rosengarth, says it best. “Over the years, the team at Big Bear has invested a lot of time, effort and expense to make the venue perfectly suited to host our ‘gathering of the tribe.’ With miles of trails, a performance stage, large pavilion, community bonfire ring, potable water, hot showers and plenty of flat-ground camping, Big Bear has all the ingredients required to make Dirt Fest West Virginia a rousing success.”
The trails at Big Bear are very different than what you’ll find at the Allegrippis Trails, the location of Dirt Fest PA. While the Allegrippis is all about flow, Big Bear features more technical terrain. Big rock features, most notably “The Crack” (which is literally a crack in a huge rock through which the trail cuts), offer a challenge. But there are plenty of more mellow trails for beginners as well.
Do not fear this race. Come try to slay against some of the fastest dudes in the Midwest. Or come do a lap and drink some boxed wine in the woods. Or come heckle with a super soaker. Make SSKC18 what you want it to be. Follow your dreams.
