Sea Otter ho! Yesterday/today Zach Griffith and I drove straight from Boulder to Marin (it took 20 hours with heavy snow), and today we tasted the goodness in a big way.
XC with Mark Weir
Yeah, I know, always a hard thing; not always a good thing. He invited us on a “one and a half hour ride,” which in Weirspeak means you leave from his house, do a long approach, do a 90-minute+ climb, rip the descent and then ride back home.
The weather was perfect, the climbs were huge, the views were stunning and the descents were braaap. Good stuff.
Pumping it Up
Since I visited last Fall, Weir has doubled the size of his pump track. It’s even more ridiculous — and more flowy — than before. Give an obsessive man a mission, and he’ll take it all the way …
Zach and I were beat after the drive and the XC ride, but we had a great pump. I look forward to a mega sesh next week after the Otter.
Next: Tomorrow we arrive at the Otter, set up camp, register and walk the DH course. I’ll be off the radar until at least Monday. Rock it!
