I was hoping for consecutive weekends with RMAR. Now I have to choose between the two.

So the check is in the mail and we are set for August 9th-10th at Arrow Head Point campground in Buena Vista, Colorado for Westfest

I know some people wanted it back to back with RMAR, but unfortunately we could not get those dates, and we really wanted to have it in Buena Vista and specifically at Arrow Head Point.

This is a great venue with tons of room and amenities. Also, they are more than willing to accommodate a bunch of damn bikers

Having it in Buena Vista will give people access to a great community with good restaurants and bars as well as things for the family to do if they come along.

Most important is the riding though. Buena Vista is a gateway to world class single track in Taylor Park, amazing dual-sport riding in any direction and some of the best twisty highways in the state

Westfest 2013 will offer epic riding for everything from trail to street. It is guaranteed to be a good time.

Mark August 9th and 10th 2013 on your calendars and we will get more details up shortly.


Thanks,
ben

The 2009 event in BV was phenomenal. Taylor Park has IMO the worlds best trail system.

2009 WF was my first time over Pearl Pass. It was August 1st and we got snowed on at the summit. The storm broke on the other side of the pass:

Arrowhead is a great place for WF

Went to both of them and still have some places I didn't get to yet.

Taylor Park Rocks!!!

For those of you unfamiliar with the area, Buena Vista sits immediately east of the Continental Divide. Taylor Park is right on the other side of the Divide from BV, so BV is the closest real town to Taylor Park. Taylor is one of the few places in the world that has a well established trail network where you can frequently get above treeline. The trails tend to be difficult, but beautiful.

I own a pair and they are really well thought out. Anyone that wins a pair of Dubinky's at WF (assuming he's giving away a pair) is in for a real treat.

Do it on the 9th and 10th. That way the truly hardcore can experience an epic Colorado Rally triple crown with RMAR on Aug 27th-28th, the Moose Run Rally Aug 3rd and 4th, and WF on the 9th and 10th.
These dates don't make sense...

RMAR in Aug?

WF on Fri/Sat?

Sorry for any confusion on my part....

Westfest will be August 9-11th, so Friday thru Sunday, with group camping on the 9th and 10th.

Thanks Paul. Yes there will be several Dubinky Products given away, I think there may be more than one pair of pants up for grabs

I hope I will be able to get some other good sponsors so we can have a bunch of cool stuff to give away.
