Nice Cornering

We had a great day zooming up, down & around French Gulch today - wheeee!

Laying fresh tracks in a few inches of new snow up French Gulch.
We were first or second tracks on every trail we took today - fun, fun, fun.

I love following Max & Zorro through fast corners and "pedal to the metal" straightaways. Here are some clips of what I mean followed by a nice video putting it all together.

Sprint & lean into a left...
Launch out of the left before beginning the lean into the next right...
Straighten out into a full sprint straightaway.

And here is the video putting it all together - lean into a left, lean into a right and straighten out into a dead sprint (the GPS clocked us at 20 MPH on the straightaway).

Lean, lean, sprint to 20 MPH!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

And the pretty face shot of the day:
"Hi! Did you say time to turnaround?" asks happy Max.
"Not now dude, don't you realize this is the meadow where we have spotted MOOSE before!"
exclaims intense Zorro surveying the landscape for moose.
A fun day laying fresh tracks most of the day on the trails in French Gulch: 8.5 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH.
