There was a time when new snow meant putting the bike up on the rack while the skis were fetched. Things have really changed in that regard. So many folks are rocking winter riding rigs now that the trails get super buffed within hours of a snowfall. That sort of packing creates an amazing riding surface, traction to a point, but still plenty of mystery moves happening. This is where some skills are born, like smearing the front tire and the back tire and drifting.
Its so fun and its so good for your overall riding skills. Today Casey was rocking the Vanhelga tires by 45nrth and it was amazing to see what he could commit to with that tire tread. Pretty much summer to be honest.
The warm up is here, but so far not as bad as it has been made out to be, in fact it has so far improved the conditions if anything.
Here is to crossing the fingers for the next few days!
