Don’t miss the Monster Army Recon BMX Tour at Windells!


Even though it’s down to the last session on snow, things at Windells are slowing down quite yet. On August 17th, during our Session 8, Windells is hosting the Monster Army Recon BMX tour. Windells will be the last all-ages west coast stop! Get in on the action.

This year the Recon Tour is highlighting the 10 best parks in the country – 5 on the east coast, and 5 on the west coast. As the final stop for the west coast, the Windells campus is stoked to get in on the fun! We will have Monster Energy’s BMX Pro rider Mike Spinner here to host the competition, and the division winner from each stop will receive an all expenses paid trip to Spinner’s very own private backyard compound for the Recon Finals. Nearly $100,000 in cash and prizes are up for grabs!
