$100,000 in prize money? Split between three winning trail networks? That’s what’s at stake in the annual Bell Built Grants. Bell Helmets and IMBA have teamed up to build three dream trail projects and after whittling the contenders down to 12 finalists in three regions, the West Coast winner has been decided by popular vote.
Ft. Tuthill Park in Flagstaff, Ariz., was chosen to receive one third of the prize money. Curated by the Flagstaff Biking Organization, the funding will help construct a mountain bike facility housing flow trails, beginner lines, pump track, a dual slalom course and more, encouraging more riders to pick up a mountain bike and hone their skills.
Now that the West winner has been decided, the voting for the Central Region is now live. The four train networks hoping for your vote are the Andres Bike Park in Illinois, the Chapman Bike Park Project in Colorado, the Cottage Grove Bike Park in Minnesota and the Hobbs Hollow Flow Trail in Indiana. Visit the Bell Built website to learn more about each of these projects and cast your vote.
