Topping 20mph

Conditions were good enough to uncork the skijoring engine and top 20 MPH for the first time this season - 21 MPH to be exact!
Zoom we go sprinting atop an inch or so of new snow over a snowmobile track through the forest.
We are all happy to report that there is (finally) enough snow at Rabbit Ears to throw caution to the wind and put the pedal to the metal! Max, Zorro and I all saw & felt the excellent conditions, so we uncorked the engine at hit our top speed of this early season ... 21 MPH - wheeee!
Synchronized in a fast sprint tuck. Zoom.
Below is a quick video excerpt capturing the spirit of our fast sprint day. Zoom, whee and YAY for the perfect conditions!

What does Max think of the conditions?
"Aahhhh - rub-a-dub-dub, love to roll angels in the snow!" demonstrates silly Max.
"The things I must put up with!" declares all-business Zorro :)

The conditions are becoming perfect at the speeds & mileage are growing! 9 miles traveled with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH.

2016/2017 Season to Date: 19 days on the trails covering 140.1 miles with 13950 feet of elevation climbed.
