Hidden Trails and the Frame Family are on the top of our list for a huge thank you! They are incredible hosts to all of the athletes, their families and support crews - thank you for inviting us to your dealership to present the Pro awards and throwing a great party.


The highlight of the evening was the Hidden Trails "Hot Wheels" race-off, for prizes, which was narrowed down to four finalists: Sammy Nehme, Taylor Skellett, Cory Roush and Jeb Zarzour who tore up the track with Sammy Nehme winning the grand prize of a Haibike Bike worth over $5,000. 

We would also like to thank the Charleston WV Convention and Visitors Bureau with a special thanks to Samantha Carney for her time and energy in making sure that when each and every one of you come in to Charleston you feel welcome and enjoy their city! Everything was top notch!
