Another instalment of Scott Bikes’ ‘Chasing Trail’ series. This is a top little vid of a skilled rider on awesome but regular-looking trails just having a right ol’ good laugh.
Looks like North Carolina is another destination to stick on your Bucket List.
It’s always good to watch a rider on their home turf. No one knows trails like a local. And when the local rider is Neko Mulally it’s fairly certain that the average speed is going to be quite high.
Neko explains: “For this edit, we really wanted to film trails that I thought would best represent the variety and quality of terrain that the area has to offer. Let’s start with DuPont State Forest—a 10,000 acre park with over 86 miles of unique terrain.”
“The trail network in DuPont features lots of exposed rock, which is quite unique on the east coast. DuPont is a refreshing contrast to the technical terrain of Pisgah National Forest. Although only ten miles apart, Pisgah’s terrain provides raw, rough trails littered with rock gardens and tons of exposed roots. Pisgah is considered a must-ride, mountain bike destination and pulls in thousands of visitors each year.”
“This is where I do the majority of my riding so it made sense that this is where we focused our filming. We started on Farlow Gap, which is known to be one of the longest descents in the forest. I consider it a real adventure trail because it’s so remote and deep in the wilderness.”
