    ... and if we just ... UTE FaCKING VALLEY...PICTURES

    Well.

    The ride Tuesday turned into a 3 hour, 4 mile huck and roller fest. Ute valley will never be the same...




    Paul gets top billing because he brought beer.

    Not only beer, but Stone IPA. Real beer...



    Sometimes the moon and the earth align just perfectly there is something magical that happens...



    (I took that with my biking camera)

    And when they do, great masters perform their best work...












    And then things start to get jumpin...

    You make me looking forward to the weekend... As soon as the resorts close I'll be asking if I can come and play in your sandbox. That stuff looks super fun. Great riding skills, too! Thanks for sharing.

    Those are excellent. I'd love to have more active participation in the next Inflexable huck and drop fest. I can't believe we don't do those more often.

    Its pretty fun that way. You just sorta stall over the lip in the air and land just on the top. It would be way cooler if i was dropping it backwards...

    Kristian, are you still going to make GITA or did the early AF closure spoil it for you?

    Unfortunately, I'm going to bail. Angelfire figured pretty heavily into the plans for me. I was really looking forward to riding with you again though. Maybe I can swing down in the spring sometime for a tour...

    I understand, AF was a big part of the gathering for me too.

    Let me know when you'll be down this way and I'll show you the goods.

    LOL! I wish! And so does my bruised shoulder and thigh! At least the armor took the biggest part of the impact.

    I was just thinking the same thing - maybe a good venue for the Nicolai's maiden voyage.

    Please do actually. I'd like to check out a Helius FR in person before pulling the trigger on one.

    It's a plan. I've been wanting to ride down in the CS area again for awhile. Maybe we should get a Palmer (or wherever) group ride going soon. I feel like a kid getting ready for summer vacation with the race season ending - who'da thunk having great fun would be so much work?

    No, I'm compiling my list of Preston replacements right now. If everything works out alright, I will have a new fully by spring.

    Well, you can ride two of your choices back to back (even though they are probably two of the most rare bikes in this country) when Josh comes down. Of course, the Delirium is sprung a little softly for you...

    Josh, let's do PP sometime soon. Ute has some good stuff, but it doesn't have the volume to make the drive worth it...

    You guys certainly do hit it like you mean it i always enjoy the posts & pics. Someday fate will allow me to see in person the crazy/zany/nutty riding.

    Heal fast K-man, my hat/Giro is off to you all.

    Which one? No seriously, which one?

    K-Man, we need to do another roller day very soon. I have been resisting attempting that big wall you found. There's also the one that I was telling you about by the drop Keaton and Jordan were hitting. What are you up to next week?

    My guess is the one that is about 1/4 mile to the left of the bottom of the Improv--that is certainly the most crazy thing I've ever seen Josh on.

    I might be up for something this Monday morning... I have Summit Co plans for next weekend though.

    I'll be in Wyoming until Monday night. It'd have to be Tuesday at the earliest. If you wanted to do a weekend so Icegeek could come down with a big camera, the 8th and 8th would work for me... but you'll be in Summit County. Hmmm...

    Nope, leaving tomorrow. I do want to play hookie and ride Keystone, but I need to get the last of my work done in my current position before I step into my new one on the 17th.

    I think this is the pic of the "kristian" line, he scouted it and was the only one to ride it, he's on the entrance in the pic, pretty crazy line, too bad it's not in the pic

    Well I have seen some crazy sheit K rides that defies physics so I can imagine. It's a great pic anyhow...

    The sole reason I don't come to the springs anymore is that I don't want to puke seeing the lines you guys are doing these days. j/k..Seems the bar is much higher than when I was there last.
