The Epic Rides Oz Trails Off-Road took place in Bentonville, Arkansas this past weekend. Bentonville's a unique town in North West Arkansas that has fully embraced mountain biking. The trail system has taken over 20 years to develop and consists of some of the most fun terrain you can ride. It was a perfect stage to decide the overall standings of the Epic Rides Series. Both the men's and women's overall standings were only separated by a few points. Last year the flint rock that the trails run through wreaked havoc on the extremely light tires most XC pros are usually able to get away with, and 17 out of the top 20 men suffered a flat tire. Conditions this year were no different, but, armed with the new DART tool, our Stan's athletes were able to have themselves an extremely successful weekend.
