Cam Zink jumps out of the back of a Gator (his uphill transportation) en route to his starting point at Mammoth Mountain. Although Mammoth is best known as a winter resort, it also has a long history in the world of mountain bike riding. Mammoth actually possesses 80 miles of single track as part of its extensive bike park.
