    Trio

    Had a blast at the Trio this year. Great weather, temps rose from the upper 20s to mid 40s, making for a warm day! Course was very nice early in the day. Heard it got a little soft towards the end (3rd lap for 60ers and 1st for 20ers). I re-rode the course today and could see what people were talking about, most of the moose-holes on the flat looked like they held up, but anything on a grade seemed like it got hammered, especially on the climbs, creating a few holes where you had to walk past. Still, great conditions (actual SNOW!) and you could really rail some turns early on!

    A few pictures post-race:

    Short clip from today's post-race course ride (think of it as completing the 60?), I got lots more video to choose some cool moto-looking sections from:

    Definitely a good time. I should have taken my time on this one. I didn't stop at the midway aid-station for beer and I missed a perfect photo opportunity of Mt. McKinley. I'm a little bummed about that.

    Hey there, I'm headed up to Talkeetna next weekend and was looking to do some mountain biking. Are there any good trails near by (that may be rideable right now)? Thanks for the help!

    I just saw the forecast for 50 degrees and it's been above freezing for weeks, it was turning into jello slush a month ago in the afternoon, I'd imagine it's mud in between soft slush piles? This is usually the worst time up here, as we are waiting for trails to dry out enough to ride. The ground is basically like a sponge and saturated.

    Maybe someone else knows something different.

    Yeah, I kind of figured it would be too wet. I just thought it I'd check because I'm not too familiar with riding up there. I'll have to check it out later in the season, thanks for the help though!
