Garrett Trails Building NEW Trails in Fork Run

Thanks to a partnership with Garrett Community Action, Garrett Trails was able to secure funding through the American Recovery Reinvestment Act and secure NEW green jobs for young people. Thanks to training from the International Mountain Biking Association work is underway on a sustainable natural surface single track trail. Located in the Fork Run Recreation Area. Currently almost 3000 feet of trail is developed. I went with Garrett Trails President steve Green and viewed the progress and got an explanation.

Resentment Racing ReOpens Doors

    After an equipment failure and disappointing start to the 2010 season Resentment Racing has stepped up in class and ready to take the green again. A very special THANKS to my dad who put up with me AND drove the 14 hours to get this car. I am very excited about the increase in power and rear wheel drive and will be running Roaring Knob, Elkins, Cumberland & Bedford this season. We love your support and hope to see you at the track.
