Some Chilcotin action from last Fall. This was a new left hand hip that we built after one of our trails was harvested. We re-opened it and added 4 new jumps in this zone. . The day after we finished, I went up to sample the goods and ran into a photog buddy, Colin Wiseman, and he got a couple snaps of me at dusk.
oh yeagh...one of my favorite weekday rides from my time living in SLC! Guessing thats up by the radio towers?
Not sure exactly what this ridgeline would be called. I headed uphill to the north from the old Bobsled entrance and just kept on that ridge heading east then north once up there. I know there are some towers the next ridge/peak over but haven't been up there and I know there are some over on the other side of City Creek Canyon that i haven't been up to yet either. I'll have to check that out.. The Chilcotins climbing skills have made riding up the steeps to access some of this stuff much more doable. Rode up to the 'living room' overlook a couple weeks back for the first time and couldn't believe how well it pedaled up that super steep, sustained, and sometimes loose grade. I definitely shold have taken some photos with the rock furniture.
dude, interesting question. I honestly feel Yes. There were a couple places during the race where the bike performed totally differently during the race run (compared to my pre ride with the woodie).
In one "stand up power pedal" section I had to back off during the run because the wheel was skipping over the rough ground...but during practise it had stuck to the ground like glue...that specific fact has stuck in my mind.
It really pedals 'light' with the Woodie. Riding my DH trails this week for the first time with the Woodie...that is always my ultimate testing ground. I am very very impressed so far.
