Each year, the cycling industry gathers in Las Vegas, Nevada, for the largest bicycling trade show in North America. The first couple of days are highlighted by Dirt Demo, a mountain biking mecca where bicycle retailers, members of the press and others can test out the latest and greatest bikes and accessories.
