It's spelled challenging and crew. Gotta bust balls

Taylor park from what I hear is technical.

The dirt here is a lot different than east coast dirt...

Heh right forgive me my spelling I`m European and English is my second language so I`m doing my best to type correctly :bonk:

I heard about Taylor Park already. Thx and I think you should read my post more carefully despite wrong spelling, because I didn`t ask where to ride but for hard core guys to ride with , anyway.....

You're probably looking at the wrong time of year. Not much in the way of trail riding will be open till May or so. It's MX or PPIR till then or racing. Hare Scrambles series at VDR through the winter, RMEC starts in Jan in Az., and CORCS and WEBE start in April.

If the weather allows, our group will be heading over to the western slope on the 30th and 31st. We will probably hit Sidewinder one day, and Rabbit Valley/Westwater the next. Check out Vid’s of Sidewinder and Rabbit Valley on YouTube to see if it is what you are looking for. It is some fun singletrack but not extremely technical. Ut does require their own off road sticker. Let me know if you are interested.

The last time I checked the UDOT cameras it looked like the Swell and Moab areas were still free of major snow. Trails like 5 Miles Of Hell and others are still rideable I would guess. How far do want to drive to ride. This time of year you don't have many choices.

The VDR Harescramble last Sunday (next: Jan 8th) had really tough conditions- like racing on pig shnot covered ice for 2+ hours. Can't see January's race being that much different. Come out and see if you can avoid being dismounted for 2 hours.

I have been in Moab 3 weeks ago. Great place! I have the UT sticker already.

I`m flying to NJ for Christmas and all depends how long I will be there. If I get back 30th I will definitely go . I will be in touch.

I don`t have studs in my tires yet. They are little pricy so I will wait little bit with that. Thanks anyway and keep in touch if any riding with no studs.

Oh, we weren't using studs. The soil was frozen, the top few inches was a combination of snow, water and muddy-clay slop. VERY difficult conditions.

Studs would've helped, don't know if you can run them.

If you are back, pay the $35 and line up on the 8th.

No problem if you want to meet up with us. Hopefully the weather cooperates. Sidewinder is a fun singletrack loop with some good technical sections. We can put a 60+ mile loop together at Rabbit Valley/Westwater that has a bit of everything. Pray to the weather gods and get in touch after Christmas.

I've heard Sidewinder is pretty good and I've never ridden Peach Valley so that should be fun! I've only been on the rim trail (don't know the real name) and a couple of other ST's around RV so that will be good to ride with folks that know the area.....lots of roads and trails out there.

Hopefully all of the stars align, weather looks good and I remember about this in two weeks. Thanks!

When trails open back up I'd be more than happy to show you the fun and technical stuff around us. Some within an hour or so drive :-) You'll be beat less than an hour in, and we'll ride for 7-9 hours daily. In the meantime, let me know when you want to do some winter riding. LHC will give you an idea of what we have here...
