Maxxis Intersections Part 2

West Virginia is a state in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains that carries its fair share of stigmas; some well earned, others less so. As beautiful as the landscape is, and with no shortage of natural resources to explore and enjoy, it’s also a state that has seen a steady decline in population over the years.

There is, however, one county bucking that trend: Tucker County, WV. Davis is a very small town in the middle of Tucker County with a well-earned sense of optimism that permeates throughout the region, and mountain bikes have played a rather large role in that.

Maxxis athlete Brice Shirbach heads to the heart of West Virginia’s highlands to get a taste of these good vibes for himself, and to sample some of the less-than-purpose-built glory that awaits him in the forests surrounding town.
