Freedom Riders

Length / 49mins

Twenty years later, riders blazed a new sport down the Teton Pass - Freeride Mountain Biking. But this time it was illegal. Nevertheless the sport grew, and trails were built. The Forest Service tried to close the trails, but the bikers removed the obstacles and continued on, only to have the Service again 'close' the trails.

Through town hall meetings, a trail was finally allowed, making it the first permitted downhill-specific trail in the country.
