An eight-year-old girl rides past me, cornering berms and gliding easily over rollers. I sit on an $8,000 Specialized Stumpjumper Pro mountain bike and hesitate to attempt the same course.

I’m in the skills park at Deer Valley resort, Park City, Utah, one of the top three mountain biking destinations in North America. I’m also in my mid-50s and back in the beginner zone with a bang.
