A Note from Fatty: My race report for the 25 Hours in Frog Hollow is taking a break today because I felt like making a video this morning. I’ll resume this story on Monday.
Everyone I suspect that everyone has a special place in their heart for the ride they do most often — the ride they do when they have a not-huge amount of time for riding…but still enough to have some fun. Get their heart, legs, and lungs going.
For me, that ride is Corner Canyon. I believe I’ve mentioned it before.
But I don’t believe I’ve mentioned the trail I love most of all: Rush. Which is stupid, because it’s the most incredibly, ridiculously, outrageously fun “flow” trail around — it’s fast, with dozens (hundreds?) of little woopdedoo jumps, banked turns, and quick, steep drops.
And to think: until yesterday, I had never bothered to film it.
But yesterday, during lunch, I finally got out the GoPro, attached it to my handlebar, and filmed the whole descent.
Through some piece of luck, I didn’t run across a single person during the entire ride (except at the intersection, toward the very bottom — and they were not on the trail. Which meant I got in nobody’s way, and nobody got in mine.
So, here it is: a top-to-bottom video of Corner Canyon’s Rush trail. Put — appropriately enough — to a Rush soundtrack.
Not bad, eh? But I’m sure your standard lunch ride is just as good. Right? Right?
