The "Sam's Pant's" of Winter Trail Conditions...Buchanan Pass Trail

some may call it the cats ass...round here when the trail conditions above 9500 ft are boot packed we call it the "Sam's Pants" of trail conditions. The Redstone Tuesday night ride had 8 locked & loaded restoners ready to hit high country trail the first weekend of March. After racing the Leadville winter races, doing some skate skiing & a bit of snowshoeing I figured it would be good but this was simply...The Sam's Pants. Trail conditions were nearly perfect & a great pre-run for the final race at Leadville this weekend.

Happy Birthday Dave!!!

A big ole warm shout out to the local boys & girls at Pearl Izumi for the Barrier GTX winter riding shoes from Redstone. Cheers!

Hope to see you all this weekend at the Leadville Crystal Carnival & the final race of the Leadville Winter Mountian Bike Race Series Saturday night following an Oskar Blues beer fueledSki Joring downtown Leadville...•Mineral Belt Mayhem - Saturday, March 6 at 7:00pm
