Avery has been the featured DH Track in CB’s Evolution Park since 2009 and has challenged racers from all over the west. The track’s flow has been maintained and enhanced by the CB Bike Patrol and Trail Crew led by Christian Robertson. Christian has overseen all of the improvements and additions to the park increasing the count to 18 trails of green and flowy to double black diamond challenges.
