In this video, Breckenridge local and pro rider, Kevin Soller, takes you on a tour of B-Line, a trail that's part of the town’s trail network (the Breckenridge Freeride Park was one of the first municipally-funded parks in the country), which extends from downtown and is used to access spectacular high-mountain singletrack such as that along the Colorado Trail, Guyot loop, Wheeler Trail and many, many more.
When I was invited by Anthill Films to join them and Matt Hunter on this pioneering journey for their upcoming short film, “Forgotten Dirt,” it was clearly a no-brainer. It was guaranteed to be the adventure of a lifetime. This video and photo gallery hint at what's coming on August 6th.
