Amputee Climbing: A Weekend in Hueco Tanks

Hey guys, things have been really exciting lately. Looking forward for the heat of summer in the South to fade away and bring the cooler temperatures of October and November. Until then I have just been training a whole lot starting to get prepped for the fall season. I hope to send my first V8, Harvest Moon at Zahnd, this fall. I am also looking forward to getting back to Hueco Tanks and sending my first V9, Ministry of Truth, in the Spring.

A Recap of the Last Few Weeks

The last couple of weekends have been super fun. We hosted the WYDAHO Mountain Bike Festival from July 22-24 here in Teton Valley, with great group rides all over the area under sunny skies, two rocking parties, trials riding demos and skills clinics from the team from RipStoke, and a 5-hour cross-country race at Grand Targhee Resort on Sunday morning. Over 200 people from across the country (and Dublin, Ireland!) showed up to take advantage of what the area has to offer–totally amazing.

And after 50 miles of riding I placed second in the 5-hour race (on my singlespeed.) The race was great–a 10-mile loop of fast single track with about 1200’ of climbing per lap. The turnout was pretty good as well; about 50 racers showed up for this inaugural year, most of them local but a few from elsewhere. My buddy Jason Berning took first by about 10 minutes, but I think I could have been with him if I hadn’t spent the last 2 laps managing serious cramping in my legs.
