Moab Thaw Mountain Bike Festival
Good friends of past, present, and future gathered in the Utah desert this weekend to ride bikes, drink beer, and usher in spring at the Moab Thaw Mountain Bike Festival.
Above: Riding bikes outside in the sun is pretty much the worst thing ever… just ask Michelle.
Above: The latest iteration of the Trek Fuel EX 9.9. One thing is obvious from looking around the demo tents at the Thaw… Mid-to-short travel slack 29ers & 27.5+ bikes are in, long travel trail hogs are out.
Above: Gotta get up to get down. Thanks for the lift Porucpine Shuttle!
Above: Mean ol’ Chad Green keeping things Midwest AF.
Above: Sylvi Fae getting it done on the ‘Tombstone’. Don’t let her perfect technique and cool demeanor fool you – this spot saw more than it’s fair share of trail carnage throughout the day.
Above: Future shredder of America… Logan is thirteen and faster than you.
Above: Your’s truly from a rare moment in front of the lens. Not bad for a desk jockey, eh?
Above: Sylvi again with the picture perfect form and calm of a Jedi.
As always, thanks to Poison Spider along with all the vendors, volunteers, shuttle drivers, and bike tech’s who make this event possible. Also, big thanks to Sylvi, co-owner of Moab Mountain Bike Instruction for playing tour guide. Next time you’re in Moab, be sure and give them a shout for your guiding and instruction needs.
Here’s to a great season of desert shreddin’!
