It’s winter here, Down Under and it’s been quite the shock to the system. I was just getting acclimated to the heat of Texas Summer and now I’m riding in nothing but cold weather and pissing rain.
Today Andy and I went riding a few local trails and after our ride, I shot a few photos. Nothing serious, just head shots, head tubes of our bikes (thanks to My Mountain Melbourne for the loaner Yeti SB95c!) and dirty butts. See a few more below.
I agree, Tracko, this one’s a weird one! Weird, but there’s some good riding in there.
… I’d be riding this trail again.
Back to back beautiful slideshows from the crew at Vital MTB. The French still do Enduro best, from the way they govern their races – riders have to ride the same bike throughout the duration of the race and changes or repairs cause a time deduction -, to the feral enormity of their terrain the set the chocolate croissant standard of Enduro racing. You don’t have to take my word for it, just pop on over to Vital MTB and check out their race coverage. SO GOOD. Day 1 & Day 2.
Ever wonder what the highest MTB race on Earth looks like?
This looks way fun!

In celebration of the The 2014 Tour Divide mountain bike race, Ty is selling prints of some of his favorite 35mm photos from his 2013 run. He’s only selling five of each and doesn’t plan on selling them again. Head over to Tytanium Life to order.
