sixsixone Core Saver 2011

Last year ( 2010 ) on Moab's Sovereign Trail I managed the "Mother of all Endo's"  off a 4 foot ledge, face planting myself in luckily the only bit of sand in miles.  The end result was a cracked sternum and 3 cracked ribs.

I realized how lucky I actually … [Read more...]

However, if you can get an early start on a weekday, this trail will be yours, and believe me, it will blow your mind. The highest danger factor on this trail, is the scenery, it's almost impossible to keep your eyes on the trail. . Trail Stats … [Read more...]

Porcupine Rim Trail Moab Utah

The Porcupine Rim Trail, probably Moabs second most famous and notorious trail. But the Porcupine is a completely different kind of ride, and more and more mountain bikers are taking a preference to this trail over the Slickrock, this might have something to with the crowds, but there is no getting away with the fact that Porcupine is one hell of a good ride.
