Trying to create a fun little thread.
Been spending a lot of time racing this year. Unfortunately the Canada Cup and Nationals didn't go all that well. The stars just didn't seem to align and I felt 'flat' at both of them (AKA I got my arse handed to me).
Luckily a little vacation was schedule for right afterwards. No training, just having fun riding in various spots over the period of a couple weeks.
Two days before leaving, I went to ride my race bike and primary MTB (only other one is the fatbike, there was a serious purge this winter). Some seals in the fork were shot. After a few frantic calls I realized there was no luck getting it fixed last minute. Left me in a pickle for my trip. Do I ride the fork as is? Or acquire another ride (a 5-6ish trail bike has been in the back of my mind).
The stars seemed to have aligned and after selling my Yeti to a trusted friend over the winter to get him back on an MTB, he found he wasn't riding it. As per the gentleman's agreement, I had first dibs on a re-acquire. This worked out perfect, I only really let the bike go as it was a friend looking for a bike. And while it wasn't the 'trail' bike I really had my eyes on, it was my baby. A frantic Thursday night and the Yeti was back getting retro-fitted how I like it.
Here she is. You might remember her from such adventures as 'An Ontario Boy's Journey to Whistler'. The boys at 9point8 came through last second with their new dropper post for me to test out. So far, pretty handy I must say, even for a spandex wearing roadie like myself!
So the purpose of this thread? I'm gonna post a photo or video of where I am riding over the course of this trip (and It's gonna be pretty variant). First person to guess the spot (and trail?) will win a big can of awesome!
