From layout and design to construction, Trail Conference field manager Erik Mickelson has been a driving force behind the new multi-use trail loop in Sterling Forest coming to life.

In recognition of this and in support of his past and future trail advocacy and builds, Santa Cruz Bicycles presented him a new 2019 CC XO1 Reserve bike in November. Santa Cruz rep Sandy Chapman, his son Chris, and JORBA president Tom Hennigan were on hand to present the award. “Erik’s focused commitment, collaborative leadership, and skilled read of the unique topography in Sterling have yielded a world-class riding experience,” Sandy says. “These trails will be enjoyed by many for years to come.”
