- Leadville 100 on a singlespeed
- 24 hours of Moab
- The Utah Cyclocross series
Getting the big buckle without gears would make all my attempts at Leadville worth it. I missed it by 12 minutes this year. That's only 4 songs on my ipod. Totally doable to make that time up.
Team Fatty needs to go back and claim the top step on the podium for the rigid SS div. No reason we can't fix that.
With my first CX season under my belt, there is plenty of room to move up. I have a lot to learn in this area but racing CX was the most fun I had all year.
For now, I'll replay these events over and over in my head as I ride indoors.

Trick of the day- Removing skins with skis still on.
Coming down the mountain- Flagstaff (Little Cottonwood)
Snowbird/Alta in the background- Jon skiing whatever he wants. It was all untouched.
Black Diamond makes really good stuff. This is the BD Covert pack in action.

At Chevron (for a fritter and Diet Coke) by 5:05am
Base of Little Cottonwood Canyon to meet Rob and Jon by 5:30am
At trail head with skis and skins on by 6:00am
At the summit of Flagstaff (10,000 + feet) by 7:15am (we had to break trail in 50" of new snow...brutal)
Home (for a shower and change of clothes) at 8:30am
At work by 9:15am
Only in Utah can you pull that off. The boss doesn't need to know how I spent my morning. As long as I'm at work at a decent time to make some money for the company (and enough to pay the bills) it's all good. That is why I will never move.

Sixty minutes of single track can make everything all good again.
It's Dec 1 and the trails in Utah County are in prime shape. We are actually starting to see some dust in spots.
If you are north of point of the mountain and not ready to hang up the MTB yet, come on down and meet "Betty" or "Frank".
