After suffering a heart attack last Saturday while riding the trails he built in Boulder City, NV, (near Vegas) Brent Thomson underwent a quadruple bypass surgery this week.

Boulder City does not provide health insurance to Brent for his job as Trailmaster at Bootleg Canyon. Therefore, friends are contributing to a PayPal account to help defray costs that are estimated in the hundreds of thousands of dollars for his surgery.

You can contribute through PayPal. Brent will appreciate it as much as you appreciate the freedom to ride the trails at Bootleg. Links and more info after the break…


Send get well wishes to St. Rose Dominican Hospital – San Martin ER c/o Brent Thomson, 8280 West Warm Springs Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89113.
About Bootleg Canyon
Bootleg Canyon Mountain Bike Park is an extensive network of World Class Downhill and Cross Country mountain bike trails located in Boulder City, Nevada. The area has been visited by riders from as far away as Japan and Germany and has been written up in magazines around the world. The International Mountain Bike Association has certified one of the XC trails as an Epic Ride, a title given out only 18 times so far.

Boulder City is located approximately 40 minutes south east of Las Vegas by the Hoover Dam and beautiful Lake Mead. The riding season is year round, however, temperatures average around 100 degrees Fahrenheit from June through August, so mid-day riding is difficult. If you do decide to come in the summer be sure to bring plenty of water and maybe some head lamps for a night ride. Be sure to check out our sponsors while you’re in town for some great Boulder City hospitality.
