Taylor Park Ride 9-1-10

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on September 10, 2010 by rockymountainsingletrack

Another fantastic week of riding in Taylor Park.
Started out by parking at the trading post and riding Timberline from the trailhead near Mirror Lake. The dry conditions made for some very technical riding through the rocks of this epic trail. All of our KTM’s answered the call and didn’t let us down. We are all using Kenda’s K270 dual sport tire. It has an excellent grip that doesn’t impact the trail as much as a full on knobby. The cost is very reasonable at about $60.
I was riding my 450 XCW while everyone else chose 300 XC’s. Slaven’s Racing in Colorado Springs has the jetting dialed in on the 300’s. It was a simple task to install his kit. No other adjustment was needed.

Winter Riding at the Red River

Where do you ride when the Rockies are covered in ten feet of snow? You head south to Texas for some of the best singletrack outside of Colorado.
This is the site of the infamous Red Bull Last Man Standing. I competed in the event and have ridden here for 15 years. The locals are very friendly. The riding is amazing and the food is even better.
This 4 day adventure didn’t disappoint as we ate our way south to Oklahoma City. Stopping for 30 laps of go cart racing at Pole Position Raceway. The carts are electric, very fast and handle like F1 cars. From there we ventured 2 hours south to our destination.
