Back to Vegas for another round of Interbike Outdoor Demo fun. Since the demo has moved to a superior venue (Bootleg Canyon), the ability to demo the bikes has improved. The trails in Bootleg Canyon are rocky, twisty and sandy. For the DH guys, there’s also a shuttle to take you to the top of the downhill course. Since I didn’t bring my body armor, I stuck to the XC trails, but found several fast and fun descents to test the mettle of both me and the bikes. Look for quick reviews of several bikes (Intense 6.6, Maverick ML75, Rocky Mountain Slayer, Titus SuperMoto and Specialized S-Works Enduro) shortly. For now, enjoy the pictures of the bikes ridden at the demo.
