With voting live for the past two weeks in the Central region, Bell Helmets has announced that the Cottage Grove Bike Park in Cottage Grove, Minnesota pulled in the most votes out of the four Central region finalists to earn a share of the 2014 Bell Built Grants. The project, headed up by the Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists (MORC), will split the $100,000 in grant money with the other two regional winners.
With help from both our team at Bell Helmets and those at IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association), this grant money will help secure the funding to complete the dirt jump section of the park, which will go alongside the 4x race track, two pump tracks, a tots track, slope style course and a mountain bike skills course.
