Getting back on the mountain bike has been so rewarding this summer, minus the fact that it has been on e the hottest summers on record here in Utah. With that said, I am counting down the days till autumn, and cannot wait for the cooler weather.
Until then, I will be “sweatin’ to the oldies” and hammering out miles on the amazing Utah XC, DH and road biking rides in the SLC area. Except for the road spinning miles, the FiveTen Minnaar’s are my go-to shoe weapon of choice, and the most badass shoe to have on your feet for XC and DH! Thanks again 5.10!
100 degrees. Perfect spinning weather.
Cant’s deny SLC of its MTB views and XC trails
Sunset spin in the Wasatch.
Sunset SLC spin.
Sunset SLC XC trail shred.
Warm weather and the end of winter sport travels and shenanigans means it’s time to dust of the parachutes, wingsuits and gravity toys. I cannot express how great it feels to get back into the air. Things are lining up great for an amazing summer!
Thanks Skydive Ogden for the continued altitude adjustments!
All finished up and ready to get nasty.
For the past year or so my passion for FXR’s grew insanely out of control, but was tamed by their high price and rareness. It was always a pipe dream of mine to own a early 1990’s FXRT or FXRP, but with the recent popularity increase in these nearly extinct machines, I never thought I would ever in a million years for under $10k. Well, my assumptions were wrong, and one fell into my lap last fall and went straight into the garage for a make over.
Huge thanks goes out to the boys at Bonnevillains Speed Shop, Dirty Rat MotoCyco and Harley Davidson in SLC. Also cannot thank the homies at Death Squad for the most proper parts.
Welcome to the family 1992 FXRT. Time to get nasty!
This winter I got the opportunity to travel the world with the Swatch Freeride World Tour by The North Face. It was an amazing few months, jam-packed with travels all over the globe to Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada, Courmayeur, Italy, Chamonix, France, Kirkwood, California, Fieberbrunn, Austia, and Verbier, Switzerland.
The schedule was crazy, and the jet lag took a while to recover from, but the experiences of travel, freeriding, and events were unbelievable. I cannot wait for what 2014 has in store for the FWT.
Now I have a few free months of warm weather in my agenda, so let the parachute and flying sports begin!
Finally, ONE unified tour!
2013 will be an epic season.
Currently in Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada ready to kick this season off!
August I got the amazing opportunity to do a GoPro and Harley-Davidson ride from Seattle to Sturgis with Chad Kagy, Aaron Chase, Eric Jackson, Ashmore Bodiford, Brian Lopes, Christian Schauf, Wes Nobles, Zach Schauf and many more.
The video just dropped and I couldn’t be more stoked. Check it out! #epicsturgis #hd110
Thanks again to Harley Davidson, Go Pro, The Schauf brothers, and everyone apart of this once in a lifetime ride.
