Paris @ 5 MPH

That’s a little joke for all the Greenvillians in the house.

I met up with Mountain Goat and David who I had never met before along with Rick for a ride at Paris.

We flew around the trails. That may be the fastest circuit to date. I always feel incredible the few days after racing. Even though my legs scream at me when I push them, everything else just feels so good.

For the first time, I cleaned every uphill climb along the way which is no easy feat on the single. I was leading down the technical rutted section on Firetower and got slightly out of control before the turn but no biggie.

There was even some frozen spots with left over snow still out there on the backside of the mountain.

Goat Epics and David were really ripping the trails even though this was the first time they had seen Paris proper. I don’t think it gets any better than showing skilled riders your local trails. They will be back.
