    I wanted to ride kelso on the 30th...saw the sign and decided to hit up hilton falls...the bent rim trail is NUTS. I would pay some serious cash to witness someone ride that baby end to end in the saddle...wow...just....wow.

    I did the same as you on Saturday, and agree bent rim is insane. Can't work out if I love it or hate it. That is very humbling in places.

    My only beef about Hilton is the poor signposting. Many of the trails are not on the map, and Hilton have now decided to make some of the trails hiking only. I ended-up getting lost out at Wandering Lynx, and eventually coming out at the race track.

    Had a great time though!

    Yep, I entered my very first race (25Km trail run). It was damn hard, with a total of 4000 feet of climbing and descending over the course.

    They also had a 50Km race and also a "ultimate" 92.2Km race (50km first day, marathon the second day). Unreal.
    My rides:
    Lynskey Ti Pro29 SS
    RM Suzi Q 90 RSL
    KHS Team 29
    S-Works Roubaix
    KHS CX 550 cyclocross
