Zen Love

A few months ago I took a solo day trip to St. George to ride some trails that I would be racing on in a few weeks. I really needed some red dirt therapy. I couldn't find anyone to go with me so, I ventured out on my own. Contrary to what I was saying during the Grit 50 Epic "There is nothing Zen about Zen". This is true when your trying to race it. Its tough, technical and demanding. But, when you are all alone and seem to have the entire trail to yourself, it actually is quite Zen. Maybe thats what they had in mind when they named it. I was eerily all alone for the entire day.

I am just now sifting through the footage from that day due to a corrupted file that kept crashing my Imovie. Its fixed now. Enjoy this amateur video.

Since it snowed last night, and Im not able to take advantage of the fresh snow NOR get on my bike. I thought a video would make me feel better. It did, just a bit.

Rush with Justie

Another day in Corner Canyon while on my "sabbatical" produces another video. I chased Justie (Justin Thomas) down Rush. Trails have been awesome lately. I have been on lots of rides. I'm ready to go back to work. Enjoy the vid.

P.S Can't wait for the last section of Rush to open up. Hopefully soon!

My love for CC runs deep

So, the chains finally dropped in Corner Canyon and along with it, the floodgates of joy were opened as well. Got out for 20 miles yesterday afternoon with Banks, Jdub, and JT. It was a great time except JT was trying to kill me via cardiac arrest. I will get my payback sometime. My heart was beating so hard I could feel it in my ears.

Anyways, heres a video of Jacobs. I need to adjust the camera up just a little. Otherwise it would have been a great video. I loaded it anyways. I also have one of Ghost DH. Justin was trying to show off for the camera and unclipped his pedal. He almost ate shit. That would have been awesome. (for the video sake not Justins)

It was a blast to get out, the day was perfect and the trails are pure money right now.

Hannah rockin Moonbeam

I finally got this thing figured out and posted it onto vimeo. Its kind of a long video. Watch it if you like.

I took Hannah up to Solitude last week and we rode the "big lift". She was unsure of it but whats a dad to do? Push their kid outside their comfort zone. She got the hang of it. Fun to watch how much better she has gotten this year. Still a ways to go but its been a fun winter watching her ski. Enjoy.
