My 'Sacred Ride': My sacred ride is Jimmy's Joker located on my home trails in Turkey Point, ON. This trail was built in 1998 and I have ridden it thousands of times since then, yet every time I drop into it, it's like my first ride on it! I'm constantly trying new lines and adjusting my approach on Jimmy's! The trail is known for it's technical downhill sections but it also includes one of the most challenging climbs in the entire trail system... this trail has so much to offer.
