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.
