Except for maybe one of my first rides ever, in Moab, I don’t think I’ve ever been as purple, tired or beat as I felt during this ride. We started outside of Weston and went straight up the ridge line, the climbs were steep and rocky and when we crested the top there were huge snow fields we had to traverse. A lot of us got stuck in deep snow and had to buddy up to lift bikes and pack trails. I watched a couple of guys hit the snow pretty fast and get on top pretty good, so I tried to follow suit, about 10 ft into the snow I buried the front end and flipped my bike right over on top of me… I’m sure it was humorous as heck to anybody that would have seen it. We also got to slide down a 40 ft cornice leftover, lots of fun!
Most memorable quote: “It just DOESN’T MAKE SENSE!” – Brock, while working on Matt’s bike.
Crew: Brock, Brandon, Tim, Matt C., Nate, Zac, Dane, and me. Cort and another Nate were out there somewhere, but we never caught up with them.
