Did I just say gnar and San Tan in the same phrase? Yes, I did. I know it seems impossible and improbable that there is some chunk in the San Tans, but there is…just a teeny tiny bit. Yesterday, I headed out on a upper 90s early evening ride, to shoot my favorite section of trail in the San Tans: down Goldmine from the lower saddle.
I like this short couple hundred yards of wide trail because it is steep, loose, and technical that is actually all rideable on the way up. I’ve dabbed in two spots in my handful of attempts, I know I can clean it if I just keep at it. Once at the saddle, you see the bench calling you to unclip and sit, but then you roll back around and see the downhill awaiting you…See here for yourself.
Silly me, I had the VholdR in SD mode instead of HD…so the quality is not the best…I’ll have to hit it up again, to session the San Tans…who would of thunk?
