long live love

Got out for a real date on Friday night up to Climbum's wedding at the Wasatch Mountain Club at Brighton. Had a blast ridding the Intruder up BC with my girl on the back. Judging by EJ's skills on the dance floor he has been substituting his race time with club time, I pulled a calf muscle!

After a week of the bike I was ready for a good old fun ride on Saturday. A solid group of 4 is perfect mountain group ride dynamics. Rode up LC and watched some carnage from the TofU then continued up to Albion Basin and over Cathrine's pass. Possibly one of the best stretches of techy mountain biking in the Wasatch, top 5 trail for sure. After a refuel at the Brighton store we head up to the Crest for the classic down to Millcreek. The only time to ride this section on the weekend is late afternoon, not a soul on the trail.

Again, great company, good trail, and scenery: why I am a mountain biker!

Hey Bart, here's a blast from the past, this is Brandon Sjoblom. It's nice to see you're doing well, and still tearing it up at the races. I sure do miss the days of striving to reach the level all you guys were riding at back in the day.

I'd like to get back into racing, just because it was so much fun. But with two daughers, one is 3 and the other just 2 months, really getting into a good career and the time needed to progress there, not to mention all the other things that come along with life.

Perhaps I'll see you at a few of the Intermountain Cup races next year, I've been spending a lot of time on the bike again lately, and trying to build a good base back up.

I just happened along your blog, it was awesome to see you pop up. Honestly, you were always one of the number one motivators for me and someone I looked up to as a younger rider working his way up through the ranks.

You daughter is adorable! Hopefully I'll run into you some day, and perhaps a good ride is in order some time in the future.
