Pictures From Virgin, Utah – October, 2020

Last weekend, we attended a couple of events. The Utah NICA league had its state championships in St. George and our friends from the RaceKraft MTB Team staked a claim in the desert outside of Virgin.

We spent the first night camped next to the NICA pit zone, but were able to spend a couple of evenings with the RaceKraft crew in the dirt.

Utah’s unlimited outdoors was on full display. When the red rocks collide with big skies and the wind is chill, the kids can enjoy the mountain biking across this world-class terrain without the crowds and clamor of city living. Here are a few photos from the weekend.

Outside and all is well

Fall and spring in the Utah desert can be quite amazing. If the wind is low and the bugs are out of town, it’s hard to leave.

Making way back to camp on a desert ridge

Look ahead. Level pedals. Attack position on the bike. One finger on each brake lever. Well done!

Taking time for a photo in the desert

A chest protector is a good idea out here because O-T-B doesn’t just stand for “Outside The Beltway”.

Flying Monkey. Cue the music and scan the clouds

The Flying Monkey trail is a favorite. Tyge has to walk a section or two, but he can iron out the tail every time.

Riding some desert tech

Attend Virgin Tech. It’s an experience and education all its own. Learn as you go. Broaden your horizons and meet like-minded people.

Until next time, Virgin. We hope it’s soon.
