Yesterdays late afternoon rain/hail storm did wonders for the trails! Traction is about as good as it gets here in Colorado. Enjoy it while you can, as the dry and dusty trails will make a come back when the warmer temps arrive.
Got out for about 2.5 hours this afternoon. Still toy'n around with the new hardtail. I am loving it more than last years bike....feels stiffer and lighter. Plus the SRAM XX is amazing. Surprising it took this long for the 2x10 system to hit the mtb.
As far as racing goes, what is next? I am doing the Sea Otter pro XC. That should hurt and be some good training. Doing it strictly for the training....go 100% and see what happens. The weekend after that is the more important event, the Whiskey 50 in Prescott, AZ.
