Real (de Catorce) Riding, San Luis Potosi, Mexico: Aug. 2001


AVS and the NRS getting some exposure

You can't see it, but Chuck has a big ol' grin on his face.  This was a fun, fast, swoopy section.

The giant sleeps.

AVS out on his own.

Chuck climbing the same section I'm descending in the previous photo.

Chuck bags a fairly technical descent, the photo robs the terrain of some of its steepness.

Chuck dropping in from the sun.  A kingdom of clouds over his shoulder and tasty singletrack under his wheels.

Back to civilization

This was the grail, if you squint, you can see a trail dropping in on the ridgeline from the left.  From the moment we saw it, we knew we had to get there and ride across that saddle.

This is about as far as we got.  This photo was taken at about the extreme left side of the one above.  We were chased out of there by a nasty looking storm boiling up over the  ridge behind us.  As good as the riding looked, getting zapped wasn't worth it.

We knew we would be back.
