Kross Kickoff Rocked!

Kross Kickoff served as a great warmup for our upcoming Moose Cross weekend. The organizers got a "dress rehersal" while the racers got their first dose of cross racing intensity this season. Thanks to everyone who came out to support Victor Velo's Kross Kickoff.

More Dirt.

A huge thanks to Pete Linville of MD Excavation and Johnny Z for donating their time and heavy equipment expertise this afternooon. We moved three big loads of dirt into the bike park and pushed it up onto the start hill. Lots of shaping, raking, and tuning to do now but the "heavy lifting" is done.

Wednesday Nights in the Bike Park

Our beloved Victor Bike Park needs some love. Please join us throughout the month of July for Wednesday Nights in the Bike Park. We are looking for volunteers from 6 to 9pm each Wednesday to help out with various tasks inclusing shaping new features, buffing out the dirt jumps, picing up rocks, and dealing with the weeds.

The Victor Bike Park Landscape plan

The Victor Bike Park is excited to be listed as one of the non-profits you can donate to during the annual Tin Cup Challenge. Your donation will be matched by the Teton Valley Community Foundation and each dollar you donate could turn into $1.50 for the Victor Bike Park. To donate, please click HERE. Any money raised during the Tin Cup Challenge will go to completing the landscaping, purchasing some prime topsoil, and adding some wooden features.

Thanks in advance for your support.

Please donate to the Victor Bike Park through the Tin Cup Challenge

At this time last year, Victor did not have a bike park. Thanks to many generous donations and a lot of "sweat equity" from volunteers we now have a great bike park for kids of all ages to enjoy. However, we still have lots of work to do and we need your help.

By making a donation to the Victor Bike Park through the Tin Cup Challenge, your donation will be "matched" by funds from the Community Foundation of Teton Valley. As an example, your donation of $1000 to the Victor Bike Park could turn into a $1500 donation after the "match". The actual per-dollar match is determined once the Tin Challenge event is complete but it has ranged from $.45 - $.50 per dollar.

CLICK HERE TO DONATE - Be sure to select "Victor Bike Park" from the list of Non-profits.

Why do we need more money?
We have big plans for a Phase II which would expand the bike park and add several new skills-building wooden features to the park.

We also have some unfinished business from Phase I including:
1) Irrigation system
2) Weed control
3) Additional topsoil
4) Purchase of Tools
5) Sod

Thanks in advance for your generosity!
