heading to vegas...

I'm in utah right now for work stuff...we have a regional trade show here in SLC so shops can come check out all the latest skate goods. to see some of the brands that i rep for. we skated a rad SLC skatepark today after the show. super fun with the whole rep posse. stoked to get a tail bluntslide on the little tranny quarterpipe... got back to the hotel and rode the workout bike and ran to loosen the legs up. on wed i fly to vegas (meeting becca and ryder there) and staying with becca's parents.
the rest of the EPC crew comes in thursday night...still just chilling with training, been ramping it up a bit more but nothing ultra serious yet. have no idea how he race will go, but it should be fun to race and hurt and hopefully not puke. a bunch of us did a 7.5 mile trail run on was rad and kicked my butt. pure running races are hard. jason loved the flat course (wait for the hills bro!) and smoked us all. he got 2nd and finished like 2min in front of me...cody got 3rd and i was 5th. good times!...i need to finish my beer and go to bed.

chronicles of gnarlia

so on april 17-18-19 we visited a place called fruita ...or as we call it "gnarlia" its narnia but much gnarlier. we had our EPC training camp. 3 days of epic riding in an amazing place. go visit fruita and ride as many trails as you can. you will love it. me and casey left on friday morning in a snowstorm. made it to fruita and did a 3hr ride with the rest of the crew. woke up early on sat and did an awesome loop called rim loop (i think?) we left the car at 10am....rolled back to the car at 4:30 refilled and did a couple more short loops. then finished it off with a 30min run. sun we did a 3-4 ride and 20min run....then drove home. 13+ hours in saddle in 3 days and my butt was sore. peep these pics for some spandex madness

20lb race beast

here is the bike that will hopefully propel me to big fame, and huge fortune. i bought this bike with the money i made while i was a body guard for chuck norris and steven segal. SICK!
