I met up with UtRider and Kanyon Kris yesterday for a little spin on Desert Classic. I’d never met these guys before but since I read their blogs religiously, it was like seeing some old friends. They came to AZ for a winter reprieve, and that’s exactly what Arizona is giving them.
An hour after Kris’ flight hit the ground, and less than two miles into DC, Kris decided he should hit the ground too. Kris not only hit the dirt hard, he actually bounced. Luckily he didn’t break anything and got right back up. Mark tells the story in his latest post, and Kris gives his personal account too.
We rode just passed the junction with Goat, down that last sweet section of rock before DC fizzles out to Telegraph, then backtracked to Helipad. As always the Helipad climb was sweet. The Helipad TT looks like it might become official soon.
For a couple of ski bums off their bikes all winter they sure pushed hard on the trail. Thanks for letting me tag along with you guys. Now if I can only get to Utah soon, you can show me around your backyard.
