The equipment du jour included a fleet of Salsa bikes (Moto Rapido, El Santo, Moto Rapido, and a Caballero) which all were fantastic of course! Every single wheel had a Panaracer Fire XC Pro on it, baby! They hooked up great in the hardpack dry conditions. We all agreed that the bikes and tires were awesome today. Anders' sported the bike-beater and walked into the NC convenience store with a new found confidence and he was really feeling the southern comfort.
All in all, the trails were fast, had nice berms for nice moto sound action from Mr. Larson "BaarhrrRRRR... BerearrrrrRRK". Overall the Tsali was beautiful, and every inch of trail is cut into the side of the hill with a few perilous spots. Some good climbing, rhythm, and stand-up hammering! Another really good day! Looks like the weather forecast in Maine is cold rain!!!! Suckers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1/2 the crew did a nice core workout while the others started libations. Dinner at the Bugaboo Creek of the south - Stone Creek included Fred Flintstone size portions of brontosaurus meat.
Tomorrow the group separates. The girls (including Jason) go south on the Parkway and the guys get in a good hard ride near Pisgah.
