Bear Mountain, California played host to last week’s Park Sessions. As usual, SoCal’s premier park destination was in prime condition, the sun was shining, and the park crew was on point. Locals Zak Hale, Ian Sams and Big Bear Mayor Chris Bradshaw were joined by some imported talent for a week of hot laps. Lucas Magoon came up as well as Canadian Jake Kuzyk and Trollhaugen graduate Ethan Deiss. Followed by a pack of camera-wielding, over-excited media dorks, these six riders laid waste to every transition, hip, hump, jump, wallride, and side hit the mountain had to offer. They also got some special obstacles pushed up—like a step-up to down rail and a close out to down bar. Throughout the week, local guest riders jumped in for a few sessions, and lit it up, too. That’s how it goes at Bear. Check out the preview and stay tuned for full Park Sessions video coming Fall 2012.
