WOODWARD WEST | ACTION SPORTS PARADISE
Just over ten years ago, Brian Lopes assembled the first ever All Star Weekend up in Canada's Whistler Mountain Bike Park. The 19 mountain bike title holder invited past and present talent to shred the massive dirt jumps all in the name of fun.
Lopes did it again this year, as he invited some of his closest friends to the mecca of action sports-Woodward West. The action sports theme park houses some of the most incredible obstacles, whether your sport of choice involves pedals or a skateboard. Located in Tehachapi, CA, Woodward West has everything from a full blown indoor skatepark to a dirt jump/pump track section to another outdoor skatepark. All of which is strewn about a make shift wild west town.
We made the trip up to the world renowned action sports amusement park, as well as TLD/Lucas Oil/Red Bull/KTM's Jessy Nelson and Shane McElrath, Factory Honda's Cole Seely, Rockstar Energy Racing/Husqvarna's Colton Haaker and host of other motocross riders and professional cyclists.
