    Fat Lip looks like it got a little love. Just enough, not too much, itís riding great. TG below BF got a little brushback too, the turns are a little less blind. Primo.

    Coming down from the top of Little Cottonwood Trail (ruins), the first left is Cool Way. Cool Way exits back onto main trail just below Lisa Falls. Flanders is rider's right just below that (double black techy area down to 3rd bridge). Not on maps. It's "Tech Gnar" segment on Strava, if you follow that.

    Curios if you know the history behind this trail name? Iíve been riding it for a long time and have always referred to it just as the ďCastle Inner Loop.Ē Never heard the name Mandelbrot until I saw a Strava segment with that name fairly recently.

    Don’t even tell me they flushed the angry grouse outta Fat Lip, I don’t wanna hear it...

    What’s next? No more close out turns on BF??

    and as usual bit more than I could chew. I tried to time the up so I could get to the top of Puke Hill between waves of shuttle donkeys but I failed miserably. There's so much spread between riders who are banging out a fast lap before work and those who are strolling up PH looking at the flowers that you're pretty much guaranteed to have to deal with 20+ peeps on Crest. I'm one of these idiots who sees someone ahead on a trail and has to chase them down at top speed. By the time I had passed half of the pack I was deep in the pain cave and when I finally ran out of people to chase I felt like my legs were entirely made of congealed lactic acid. Climbing from the Big Water parking lot to Deso Lake felt exactly like the last up on a huge tour when you're at the bottom of a steep drainage, the skinner isn't in, your skins won't stick, you got blisters, no food or water, and your underwear is bunching up at every 3rd step.

    Everyone I ran into was psyched though, beautiful day out, hard not to have a grand old time shredding the brown pow. The dust is coming back but it's nowhere near as bad as early July. My first bike pose, I'm usually too stupid to find a way to make it stand up on its own (that's what she said):

    That Big Water climb is stiff after 1k' of Puke Hill and the 3 Bitches already behind you...... Glad you didn't take Little Water, it would have killed you! :-D

    Every year I end up spending a day at various NICA race loops. Does anyone know if the single tracks behind soldier hollow are legal? I’ll be on them again next year.
