Summary:
Come check out CPX. We've built more dirt jumps and have tried to make the stunts more flowing. Stunts range in size and difficulty. There's something there for every skill level.

Recommended Route:
My favorite trail begins on the 20' high start ramp that sends you into a variety of ladder jumps. The Inferno and Neckbreaker are to 2 big ones. Take the trail all the way down and you'll hit more jumps and some other crazy stuff to keep you on your toes. You finish off with a 6' high ladder drop that shots you down to the best jump there. The Riverview.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Also at CPX are some new dirt doubles with gaps ranging in size from 8-16' with a nice hip-jump. On the old side of CPX some very nice bigger dirt dbls have been added next to the dual slalom cource. It's all good!!

Summary:
this place is AWESOME!!!!! get the heck of of the stupid computer and go ride it! laddeers are every where, a spiral ladder down a tree, a swirly ladder, dual slalom track, downhill track, skatepark that allows bikes, and more wooden stunts than a carpenters trade show. nice job team sally! these guys are way nice guys, they just came up to TC and i sessioned some of our local dirtjumps with them. they didnt mind at all that a 12 year old was riding with them, and they were way supportive of what the local downhill shop was trying to do. like i said before, get off the computer, go ride, then come back, get on the computer, and rave about this awesome place.

Recommended Route:
ask the guys at the main building

Summary:
These guys have put together a really cool North Shore riding experience in the middle of Illinois. I was there last week and I could't have had more fun. If you are a XC enthusiast/purist, (or just a trailhead like me) and you are actually starting to believe all the press about different "factions" of the mtn biking world not getting along and giving attitude to each other go meet the TeamSally guys. They were great- encouraging, friendly, and actual people that take pride in their work/hobby/life. With the skills and stunts these guys have built, they practically deserve to be elitist snobs but the truth is they are the exact opposite. Remember, Illinois, not BC, and they made it happen. I dare anyone to come to this place and not be wowed by what's there, how these guys ride it, and how they welcome newbies. Drops, gaps, banks, skinnies, kickers, see-saws, its all there. And how about a tight-rope high wire stunt?!? Oh yeah, by the time you leave, you will know "Who's Your Daddy?!" even if you can't bring yourself (understandably) to launch it. Treat yourself to some fun & challenge. Thanks TeamSally. Erik

Recommended Route:
Start slow & low if you need to, and then the sky is the limit. No, Really, I'm talking the actual sky.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ask Kirk or Verno, they'll hook you up.
