So, I grew up here and have been riding the FR trails for 18 years now. I started keeping a spreadsheet about 5 years ago. It's been fun to see the trends. I won't bore you all with them but I did end up bagging 106 MTB rides this year for a total of around 770 miles. (I counted days at the bike park too though...and, a lot of my rides are lunch rides around 1 hr total). Anyway, I'm calling it a good year for MTB.
Also, I found some stats from 4-5 years ago...so these are not current. These are from when I was racing the WP series, sport/expert class on a HT. Now I have a 33lb Nomad and have been enjoying the less serious side of the sport, stopping to smell the roses etc. I have no idea if these times are decent or not so I thought I'd throw them out there just to see. Not a competition, just to see what times guys are turning in on these climbs these days...all my times were on a sub 22lb Zaskar. (I also weighed a good 18 lbs less as well but that's beside the point)
