Day Trip

Yesterday I spent all day riding dirt in St. George with Miles, Brandon, and Dan Z. We left the UC at 6am, were riding by 10am and rode until about 5pm with a lunch break mixed in. And then back home by 10pm.

Conditions were amazing. Dry dirt, mid 60's, and sunny. Short sleeves and shorts.

Our rides included: Stucki, Zen, Barrell Roll, and some of the Rim trails for a total of about 32 miles.

Brandon was able to test out his new bike. The last thing he needs is an advantage on the dowhills. Now he is pretty much uncatchable.

Dan Z. is in good form and was able to dish out some pain on the climbs. I learned that he doesn't eat much sugar and I think that transaltes into good legs during the season.

Miles is riding strong but didn't show his cards. I think he may be messing with our heads and is waiting to punish us once race season is here.

After our rides, we paid a visit to Sabrosa HQ, USA. Jon gave us the grand tour. Very cool.

A quick escape from the cold and snow was just what I needed. Utah is a pretty amazing state. Just a 3.5 hour drive south and you can be in dry desert riding dirt.

Now that I'm back home, it looks like a storm is on tap for tomorrow which means we could be skiing 12" of powder on Wed/Thur.

Should have never revealed my secrets... sad I missed the Sabrosa grand tour. Again in February?

February is definitely the month for a trip to San Jorge! Let's do it!
