Description

"Fast and varied, this technical trail tempts you to let off those brakes," writes Mammoth Mountain.

Encouraging you to let off the brakes is the relatively smooth trail tread… at least compared to a few other trails in the Mammoth Bike Park. Ok, who are we kidding? This trail is still gnarly AF, especially when you pin it at speed!

The sightlines on Velocity are also quite long, and in the occasional sharp corner, you'll find big berms and a wallride or two. A few big wooden features offer big air time opportunities for advanced riders.
