Proving Grounds 2021: Course Build Preview

by 0

Proving Grounds is back for 2021. This year returning to Bend, Oregon in September. First launched in 2019, this year sees it become an event in its own right. Originally a qualifier for Red Bull Rampage, the hope it the event will soon form part of a series. Due to take place on 10-11 September, the event will take place over two days. Friday is a jump jam with the main competition on Saturday.

There was no event in 2020 due to Covid, this year one of the major changes will see men and women compete. Sponsored by Adidas Five Ten, the event is a platform for riders to show what they are capable of. Cam McCaul and Kyle Jameson have been on site to check out the course and the progress.

Course construction for the 2021 Proving Grounds presented by Five Ten is on! Heavy equipment arrived at the Oregon Dirt Park and its time to bring the course to life. Cam McCaul and KJ walk the the new lines and discuss the new massive features that are going to built over the next two weeks. Follow our YouTube channel for updates, proving ground conversations, course previews, practice, Friday Jump Jam and the final event edit.

Not too good about writing about myself, but not so bad at writing about other things. There was a time that I hated bikes, but then they became my life. Wouldn't be the person I am if I hadn't been on this journey. Here's to bikes, drinking tea and everything that comes with life on two wheels. I'm Lauren, I like bikes and writing about them. Always trying my best and up for adventures.
