Battle of the Wounded Knee


I went back to Colorado Springs on Saturday with a posse from Denver including newly relocated Luis from Tampa. Other fellas included PBR, Slow and Bsoft. Luis and myself have been friends for a few years now and he was even my Pisgah Mountain Bike Race partner back in 2008. Luis has always been a strong little fella but according to him he had two months off the bike before this ride. You couldn't tell though since he was rocking the climbs and the descents at the front of the group.



I got my ambition wiped out of me just a mile or so into the 1st downhill where I wiped out on some ice, took a digger that knocked the breath out of me and gashed and sprained my left knee.

Photo Cred: PBR



After that I was crawling at the back of the pack on the climbs and I was wigging out on some of the descents...it wasn't till we made it back to the Chutes at the end of the ride where some of my downhilling prowness  started coming back in full force.

Here's a video I shot of Buckhorn and Jacks....always fun descents and yeah I was wiggin out but trying to keep the speed up.

That's good to hear your healing up fast, I did notice that and it made me laugh because you made me look faster than I really am. For sure on Saturday I will be heading down to the springs for some dry dirt. I will talk to Jay and we will come up with a cool route.
