Old School

This afternoon I rode with Shane Kynaston. We got in a good dose of spring riding, with plenty of big climbs, technical pulls, and even a few big drops and jumps. While many riders have already hung it up by this time of year, we usually ride until the end. For me, late spring conditions […]

California Gold Rush, Part 2

Day 3: If it could go wrong it did. With no snow at the trailhead we started cruising up the old dirt road, which was dusty at first. After the first corner we found the road was also a creek bed. So now it was a muddy boulder field with melt water rushing down. That […]

Where was the snow going to continue to fall, how much, what density would it be? It came down to 2-4 feet forecasted in Utah, 2-3 feet in the Rubys, and sunshine […]

Dave appropriately named this location “Never never land.” The name was clearly inspired by the never-ending expanses […]
