Video Description BELL BMX AT THE 2013 ELITE U.S. NATIONALS
BELL Rider Nic Long is the UCI BMX National Champ. Watch him and the other BELL Elite racers in action from the race over the weekend in Chula Vista, CA.
Though the line between gravity mountain bikes and cross country machines has been blurred the last couple years, most associated equipment is still high-contrast--either overbuilt for DH gear or wispy light for XC. The new Bell Super aims to split the difference, riding that all-mountain line perfectly.
Three winning trail projects across the U.S. chosen by the people
Bell Helmets and The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) proudly announce the three 2013 Bell Built Grant winners to receive a total of $100,000 in trail building assistance to fund new mountain bike trail projects across the country. According to public votes collected, the 2013 Bell Built Grant winners are:
• Pump track/bike park - Bear River Bike Park: Routt County Riders, Steamboat Springs, CO
• Flow trail - Burke Bike Park/Jay Peak Resort: Kingdom Trail Association, Burke, VT
• Downhill trail - Overflow Trail: Copper Harbor Trails Club, Copper Harbor, MI
The 2013 Bell Built program consists of $100,000 in grants to fund three mountain bike trail projects that create places to ride for a broad spectrum of mountain bikers — one each in the
categories of bike park/pump track, flow trail and downhill/gravity trail. Following over 100 thoughtful grant submissions from IMBA chapters, clubs and land management agencies, Bell
and IMBA narrowed the field to 12 finalists that were announced in early March. Through a Bell Helmets Facebook page application that showcased visuals and background on each of the grant finalist proposals, the public had an opportunity to take it all in and vote for the three winning grants.
IMBA Trail Solutions will design and build the trail projects in 2013-2014 with help from local volunteers. IMBA and Bell jointly express gratitude and compliment to the 12 Bell Built Grant finalists who collectively put forth tremendous efforts into their submissions.
The all-new Full-9. A bike-tuned, ground-up, purpose-built masterpiece. Drafting from Bell's award-winning MX helmet (the Moto-9), this top-of-the-heap full-face bike helmet incorporates the most advanced and relevant safety enhancements available while packing in timely features like Soundtrax (Bell's built-in speaker pockets and audio cable routing), slick-integrated camera mounts, our new Overbrow Ventilation system and a full-carbon shell.
Bell is excited to announce that we’ve partnered with IMBA to launch ‘Bell Built’ – a new social media based funding program that offers mountain bikers up to $100,000 in grants to build trails in 2013. Bell will be awarding three technical assistance grants for IMBA’s Trail Solutions team of professional trail builders to help you design and build one of each of the following types of projects:
•Pump track / Bike Park
•Flow trail / All Mountain trail
•Downhill / Gravity
For your chance to win, download an application and submit it by February 8, 2013. IMBA and Bell will review all applications and select 4 finalists for each category of trail project. On March 4, those 12 finalists will have their stories told on the Bell Helmets Facebook page and fans will vote for their favorite projects within each category. Bell and IMBA will announce the final 3 winners at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, California on April 19, 2013. Construction of the three winning projects will begin in May 2013.
