Indoor training, power meters, threshold wattage, road climbing and gyroscopic musings are all fine and dandy, but tomorrow I’m coaching a young downhill racer, and it’s time to Ride with a capital R.
Who: Alex, a young DH pinner. I see him following ex-pupils Evan Powell and Joey Schusler and to the national and world levels.
Where: Left Hand Canyon OHV Area. It’s steep, raw and anarchistic. The people driving Jeeps and shooting machine guns don’t care how we ride our bikes.
What: Touch on some skills, then apply them in the steep/tight/gnarlies. A big part of riding LHC is the brutally long/steep/rough climbs. Men are made out there.
Bikes: Alex is ripping an Intense Socom. I’m rocking the Mighty Carbon Enduro with flat pedals and DH tires.
The Mighty Carbon Enduro, ready to climb like a goat and descend like a … uh … Mighty Carbon Enduro.
Know more. Have more fun!
