Fall time in the high country

After a week long trip to Las Vegas for the Interbike trade show, I was in much need of getting outdoors and up high. Crested Butte holds a special place for me and I made a b-line for the mountain bike capital of the world directly following my hiatus in sin city.

I was able to get in a lot of great riding AND got some AMAZING photos. Special thanks to Brian Buell and David Bunt for riding for the camera and Linden for the fun day of riding in circles!

Kicking into gear

Summer race season is now in full swing! I was in California last week for Sea Otter doing some work for Mountain Flyer Magazine. Now I am in Arizona for the Whiskey 50 working for Epic Rides. I am extremely happy with how things have been shaping up for me lately and this summer will certainly be the best yet!

Sea Otter reports here and here.

Rest In Peace Ryan

From Freeskiing World Tour...

Today, the freeskiing community mourns the loss of a member of our family. A close-knit community, we’re truly devastated by the passing of Ryan Hawks. We realize nothing compares to the loss for his parents Peter and Jackie and sister Alicia, and our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to them, his entire family and friends. His infectious smile, positive attitude and passion for the mountains and skiing will be missed.

When Ryan was nine years old, he skied the headwall at Tuckerman's ravine and from that point forward was hooked on big mountain skiing. When Ryan wasn’t in school in Vermont, he was skiing with friends and fellow Mad River Glen athletes Lars and Silas Chickering-Ayers. Together, they cruised the continent living out of a van called The General, searching for fresh powder and adventures.

"My father always said, 'A skier carries his own skis,' so I learned how to carry my batman skis by the age of two and have been skiing ever since ...” said Ryan Hawks on his website “I grew up on the slopes and was instilled with a deep passion and respect for my surroundings by those very same mountains.”

The freeskiing community sustains itself on the passion and energy of skiers from around the world, a shared love of mountains, skiing, and friendship. Freeskiing is at its best as a group, with all of its members. Ryan, you will be missed.

With his tight skiing style and constant smile Ryan was one in a million. I am honored to have known this awesome, passionate and heartfelt guy. It is always hard loosing a friend... Love life my friends!
