We made a road trip up to Nevada from Santa Barbara, California. Mission: to enjoy the mountain bike races at Bootleg Canyon. Mike raced the downhill race on Sunday, and I just hung around taking pics and enjoying the scenery on both days. Fun times!

I’d never been to Bootleg Canyon before, and I was pretty impressed by both the trails and the entire park.
You couldn’t have asked for more perfect conditions for a mountain bike race. The weather was gorgeous- beautiful blue skies atop a nonstop expanse of rugged desert hills and mountains. I thought the trails, especially the expert track, looked pretty darned challenging. My hat’s off to all the riders who gave it a try. You all rock!

Over the next view days I will be posting the pictures I took at the races. If you were there, I might even have pics of you. Wanna see ’em? Well, if so, please bookmark this blog or add it to your feed reader and check back again, because I’ll be sharing as many as I can.
