Meet and ride with a World Cup Downhill Champion at Winter Park on Sept. 18

Meet, mingle and ride with world-class athletes this Sunday at Winter Park Resort.

Trestle Bike Park and Winter Park Resort are hosting Steve Peat, the 2009 Downhill World Cup Champion with 17 World Cup wins under his belt, and up and coming U.S. rider Mitch Ropelato, 2009 Pro GRT Series 4X Champion, for a morning of introductions with fans.

The meet and ride takes place at the Trestle Bike Park at Winter Park Resort on Sunday, Sept. 18.

From 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., guests can hop on the lift and ride down with Steve and Mitch. Afterwards fans can meet the athletes outside of the Private Lesson Center to hang out and get some autographs.

Winter Park Resort is hosting this opportunity to give fans the chance to ride with a champion downhiller, score an autograph or two and maybe even get a tip on improving their own downhill skills.

Lift access is required, and single-day lift tickets are available for $37 adult price and $29 for children.
