Coconino 250 ITT

Summer is finally upon us....drinking sun tea while watering the plants, long commutes in the heat with arm coolers, hanging laundry in shorts and sandals, late-night BBQing, watching Pocket chase lizards around the hot dirt while strategically navigating to certain sections of shade and above all, bikepacking season....it's a special time for us all.

A cousin's wedding in Las Vegas this weekend opened up the perfect time for an ITT Coconino attempt. Here is the trackleader image that Scott has helped put up:



More information about the race here and the route here. I will be starting at noon today, about the time this post comes out.


Lastly, head over to trackleaders.com and dream your way onto the Red Rock singletrack, climb Mingus Mountain in the early morning hours, or imagine yourself putting your feet in the Verde River in 100-degree weather, or perhaps you prefer to see yourself attacking each switchback in the aspens of Bill Williams Mountain, only to finish the edge of the Sycamore Rim and cruise into Flagstaff rippin' singletrack on Elden.

If you have never ridden these areas and want to see pictures from the route, check out the following blog entry from last June.

Congrats on setting the record Chad! Makes us slackers with three kids and a wife jealous about all of your riding time. Keep it up, and see you next year for AZ Spring Fling!
