By far, the most popular thing to do at Axialfest was hitting up one of the nine available scaletrailing courses, each prepped by the Axial crew. Starting a month before the event, Team Axial put in the overtime to outfit each course with 150 challenging gates. As if the trails weren’t hard enough to navigate during the day, you could also tackle them at night with the help of LED lights on your ride and a headlamp.
The skate-style axle grind bridge claimed its victims by either throwing cars off the side or breaking servos at the bottom. The secret was to hit the throttle at the bottom. Some of the bridges were tough, but were that much more satisfying when you conquered them.
