Last February a knee injury kept me off the bike for a few months, but after a slow recovery I can finally ride again and the trails here in Flagstaff have never been better thanks to lots of rain. It's been hard not training or racing, but I'm super excited to ride my new VooDoo Aizan 29'er, and hopefully be back racing by July or August. It's amazing how much bigger wheels can help, and the bike can fly up hills like nobody's business. Today I borrowed a downhill bike and rode some of the crazy trails on mount Elden. Jumping strait into downhilling after only a handful of cross country rides in the last few months may not have been the best idea, but it was still awesome. Can't wait to ride lots more.
