NORDIC SHORE NEEDS YOU!
'By riders, for riders'. You've heard it all before right? The 'riders' in question are normally heavily sponsored and good friends with the people building the Park! What if a Park asked for everyone's opinions, from design through to build? What if the trails themselves were built by everyone? Not just Pro riders and experienced trail builders, but riders of all kinds, DH, XC, BMX? What if the park was designed and built by you, for you? That's what Nordic Shore's about.

THE PARK
Nordic Shore is a new bike park being developed in Central Norway. It is Just an hour and a half away from Oslo by train and less than two hours flight from Stansted. The mountain itself is 1150 meters above sea level and has 8 lifts. There are already 6 DH runs, 3 of which will be marked for the weekend the longest of which is 5.5km with a vertical descent of 900m, 300km of XC and single track and a small amount of North shore.

WHAT IS D3?
The D3 weekender is all about testing, sampling a little of what Nordic Shore has to offer and coming up with new ideas for design and build. All we need you to do is ride hard, party hard and tell us what you think!

There'll be a party every night, as much dirt as you can eat, a proper DH race on Sunday with laser timing and prizes (entry included in the price) and on Sunday evening you get to tell us your thoughts. On top of all this there are other activities such as Rafting and Paintball on offer. We want to build the best bike park in Europe catering for everything you can do on 2 wheels, but, to make the dream a reality, we need your help!
