Fact: Riding Moab’s deserty goodness on a mountain bike is always a good time. The recipe is simple: pick a trail, any trail, and shred it. Slickrock, technical rock features, and even some high-alpine riding make for the ultimate playground on two wheels.
Ok, anyone who’s ever ridding a mountain bike already knows about that, so rider Braydon Bringhurst decided to shift the paradigm for typical Moab riding. He hops aboard his new Canyon Spectral (which proves to be quite the trail bike) and brings the hurt to the infamously technical Captain Ahab trail. Except for one thing: he rides straight up it. Could you?
I am truly curious how many takes Braydon needed to nail that footplant atop the famous wall ride at 1:45.
