PEAK Mountain Bike VIDEO – Green Mountain Trails Pittsfield, Vermont.

Once a year Mountain Bikers and mountain loving athletes gather for the PEAK mountain bike race in Pittsfield Vermont.  Now we have a video!

Our own Green Mountain Trails (beloved by Death Racers, Ultra Runners, hikers, and hikers alike) were once dubbed the best kept secret in Vermont.  Sorry, we can’t keep them secret any longer.  At last count twenty miles balancing flowy, buffed and bermed track with hand built uber techy gnar leading to sublime vistas. There is 1000′ feet of vertical. It’s open 24/7, all year (except in the sensitive mud season) for mountain biking, trail running, snowshoeing and hiking. The system is scrupulously maintained by volunteers in the community.

Help us get the word out, about our trails and about this killer Mountain Bike Race.


Watch Peak Founder on NBC Spartan Beast Show

The Peak races were the precursor to the Spartan Races, no surprise as and Joe was among the founders of both.  Watch the 1 hour  NBC special TODAY featuring the Killington, Vermont Spartan Beast race!  You’ll see Joe and many of our Peak racers featured in the show.
