Mayhems Best USA Mountain Biking Trail 2009 Finalists

From May 2009 through October 2009 I tested more than 1800 miles of pure Mountain Biking Trails, in search of the Best Mountain Biking Trail the USA has to offer.
My search is no where near finished, and as in May 2010 I will yet again take to the trails, this time however I will spend a whole year on the Trails.

Last years Tour was the 2008 Mountain Madness Tour, and it was a very close battle between trails in Oregon’s Bend and Utah’s Moab but in the end I chose “Porcupine Trail” in Moab as the 2008 Mountain Madness Tour Trail of the Year..

This year was the 2009 Mountain Bike Mayhem Tour, and even more States were visited, even more trails were tested and and more miles were spent on the saddle.
This time I got a lot of help from Mountain Bike Forums, and from local mountain bikers. Also I did EVERY trail at least twice, the first time was a ‘Granny Run” and the second time I opened up.
I count myself very lucky that although I had a few “hefty” crashes, I managed to keep myself and my bike in one piece.

I look back at my rides with fond memories, and EVERY single ride I did offered something unique, and choosing the best trail of 2009 was not an easy task, but here are Mountain Bike Mayhems 5 finalists in no particular order:
