Chris, I love the way you have incorporated 3 cameras with various angles and slo-mo to capture the action.........(and to also further humiliate me).

No humiliation intended, that was actually a training clip, when confronted by possible hostiles pointing things at you, throw the bike down and take cover behind the nearst bolder. Someone else will hopefully come along and detract the shooters attention

Actually, this looked like a killer group and ride. Wish I could have made this trip. Let's start planning next year!!

Don't mean to crash a private party here, but awesome stuff. I've got Utah on the brain right now. Mary's is a great trail, and I love the Whitewash area, but I'm not quite man enough to take on 5MOH yet.

The first weekend/week in May is when I take my traditional Utah trip. May 5-13 will be my spring trip. Days are longer and weather is warm, without being hot. It's much more conducive to camping out in the Swell. With 13 hour long nights right now, camping really sucked.

I'll bring a computer projector and screen so we can watch videos and slide shows in camp.

No private party here, crash vids always raise the noise level a bit

Have you done Dead Cow loop, it's an excellent ride out at WW! I've got some great footage from three cams to make into a video of it, hopefully this weekend.

It's a great time to head to Moab, touristas are at a min and temps are perfect (at least they were last weekend) it's cold in the mornings but it warms up nicely during the day. Gets dark early so plan accordingly.

Yes to Dead Cow, twice in fact, although this past April I had a heck of a time finding, and ended up doing it clockwise. I guarantee we did it slower than you. I hate the whoops.



I'm not really known for my grace in the dunes either, but I love riding there.

Private party?...these guys are not very discriminating. They occasionally even let a Texan join in. They got pretty low standards IMO.

Alberta?...as in Canada? Man, I thought I had a long drive.

I can do it in 16 hours, but I generally do one day, and then the last three hours on the second. I do wish it was closer.

So far, my fav vid is part two of DR. Can't wait for the Dead Cow one cuz that is such a unique ride. When we did it 3rd week of September the water crossing near the Green was totally dry. Was it still?

Sounded like you ended 5MOH at Red Trail thus I'm thinking you rode it N-S. Is one way easier than the other?

Thanks.
