Probably the best day I've ever had on a bike and that's with three punctures that I plugged, but they kept leaking and I kept pumping. Breaking my own tubeless rules, not very professional at all.
For the first time on the trip we finally got to do a dawn start and we shuttled to the top of the last section of the Whole Enchilada to ride Porcupine rim. Holy Crap, what a trail. No wonder it rates as one of the best in the world. Rock slabs with edges rounded by millions of years of wind and sand. Views to die for...literally. There are huge drops to sail off if you get a corner wrong. Our rims took a beating on the middle section as the rock edges got sharper and I managed to explode my front tyre but no damage to my Flite carbon rim at all while Tim had no flatties but dinged his rear rim massively.
After a quick stop at the house for lunch and coffee we headed up to the first section of Whole Enchilada to ride some crazy fast flowing trails through stumming rock falls, creeks, Aspens and alpine meadows.
The morning ride took us about 3 hours as did the afternoon ride. It was starting to drizzle as we left the mountain and tonight it is raining which means snow up top and we were possibly the last riders on the top trails for the season. I'm a little bit in love with Moab. Shame I can't handle the heat.
Tomorrow we rise early again and ride Slickrock and then maybe Captain ahab, Jacksons or something else. See ya.
