Excited that I got to ride with some of our MT ALPHA Jr Girls in Moab over Spring Break.
The girls were blown away by the slick rock and sandy conditions. Big drops and cliffs proved to be harder riding than our usual Missoula dirt trails, but the girls were up to the challenge.
It was great training to push every limit on all the rides we did. Some rides we were racing the weather (afternoon storm systems) and some rides we were dealing with a hard wreck with beat-up bodies. The girls were champs though. Flat tires and bloody noses did not stop their drive to ride more trail. In fact, sometimes we repeated a section to practice tight turns into a steep uphill or getting our butts way back over that back wheel.
I was really impressed with the choice of lines that the girls took on Slick Rock, so many ways to drop a descent or climb a steep section, but they really looked ahead and made created flowy and fun downhills. It is truly a joy to ride behind them and follow their lead.
Here are some pictures of our trip!
