Yes, it was ‘that ride’. The one that reminds you the LOVE and PAIN of riding at elevation and in the dirt. I ‘sat in’ for the first 2.5 hours and then did some accelerations on some of the climbs, and they felt great. Blew up a little at the end of the 3rd hard climb. The pushes at the very end were pretty brutal. But – it was Mountain trail riding at it’s best. And it was only the beginning.
